Christian radio network K-LOVE is gearing up for its 5th annual awards show — a massive music event that will unfold from May 26-28 at the famed Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.
And this year, there’s a fascinating element that’s been added to the 2017 K-LOVE Fan Awards, with the radio network pledging to unite “fans to support military heroes in a big way,” according to a press release.
K-LOVE will be partnering with the Military Warriors Support Foundation, a group that helps connect wounded warriors and their families with housing and employment as they transition back to civilian life.
“Voting is now underway for the 2017 K-LOVE Fan Awards, empowering fans to not only select winners in each category, but additionally play a part in awarding a newly renovated, mortgage-free home for a combat wounded hero or Gold Star spouse through the Military Warriors Support Foundation (MWSF),” a press release explains.
The radio network will work with the Military Warriors Support Foundation to help place a Gold Star spouse or a wounded military hero in a mortgage-free, newly renovated home. All of the voting that unfolds on the K-LOVE Fan Awards website prominently displays the military group’s logo, with messaging letting fans know that they’ll be helping to make a major difference.
Clearly, K-LOVE’s public partnership and pledge to serve military heroes helps shed light on the wonderful and life-changing work that the Military Warriors Support Foundation is doing.
Not only does the organization offer homes to those in need, but it also provides each family it serves with “three years of family and financial mentoring so that they may learn the skills necessary to become happy and successful homeowners.”
It’s an effort that the Military Warriors Support Foundation believes holds the power to change the “lives of the generations that follow.” Find out more about the Military Warriors Support Foundation here.
In addition to celebrating well-known Christian music artists, the 2017 K-LOVE Fan Awards — which will be hosted by Matthew West and Elisabeth Hasselbeck — will also be awarding the “Film/Impact” award for the faith-themed movie that’s made the most impact over the past year. The nominees are: Ben Hur, Facing Darkness, Is Genesis History?, The Case for Christ and To Joey, With Love.
