We are thrilled to announce that this year’s Dove Awards show is going to feature a segment honoring Russ for “his life’s work and impact on the industry.” The segment will be introduced by good friend Chonda Pierce and will include performances by… well, we can’t announce that part because we don’t know who will be involved yet– and it might be a surprise!

The Dove Awards will be held on Thursday, April 19 at the famed Fox Theatre in Atlanta and will be televised on the GMC channel on Tuesday, April 24 at 8 p.m. ET, with an encore showing at 10 p.m. ET.

    This is just awesome!! VERY well deserved! God blessed Russ with a phenomenal and unique voice and, with that voice, Russ has given us some really memorable music throughout his career. His contributions to The Imperials made that era of the band arguably one of the best of all time! Well done, Russ!!

    I couldn’t think of a more deserving person than Russ Taff!! I am so thankful that he uses God’s gift to sing praises to Him, and to encourage us. You’re an awesome singer and a sweet, thougtful person. Love you always! God bless you dear.

    This is so well deserved! Russ’ passion and incredible voice and soulful style made being a Christian “cool” when he exploded onto the contemporary Christian music scene years ago! And he never lost that edge! His new “Faroe” CD just shows he’s still got it and we still love him and his music!!! And personally, he doesn’t have a pretentious bone in his body! His motivation is his love for God and the music……and it shows in every song he sings. He’s always been my favorite gospel singer!
