This past Sunday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas not one but two CHVN artists won Billboard Music awards. Mid-way through the program the late Michael Jackson performed via a hologram but that was not the highlight for Chris Tomlin and Matthew West.
Chris Tomlin won the Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Artist. The award is his third Billboard Music Award; back in 2011 Tomlin won both Top Christian Artist and Top Christian Song.
Matthew West was the surprise winner for Top Christian Song with "Hello, My Name Is".
West was incredibly excited to win the award.
"Thanks to Billboard for this award! It's been an incredible year and I'm just blown away by the recognition. But more important than an award is what awards like this signify; that a song connected with people. That is the true honor, to write a song in the hopes that it touches a heart and impacts a life."
