AbsolutelyGospel handed out the 2012 AGM Awards last night in a live ceremony including performances from many of the nominees.

  1. We watched it in it’s entirety. It was enjoyable – especially the music performances. It would be interesting to have a tally on how many votes were cast for each award that was given.

  2. Male vocalist of the year was Doug Anderson

    • Thanks! I updated the post with a link to the full winner list, which is now released.
