*The Gospel Music Association has tapped “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd to host The Dove Awards, Christian Music’s annual celebration of voices raised in faith.
Shepherd says fans can expect “a hot night of Godly music and comedy” at the annual event, which has been moved to Atlanta’s Fox Theatre this year from its traditional home of Nashville, reports the AP.
The comedian and actress is a Daytime Emmy winner for her work on “The View” and the host of “The Newlywed Game.” She also has a recurring role on the sitcom “30 Rock.”
Nominations will be announced Feb. 16 in Atlanta. The ceremony will be taped on April 20 and air on GMC on April 24, which is Easter Sunday.
