Last year after the inaugural HIT Awards 2015, we blogged out thoughts on whether the well-produced event was the much needed savior of the Gospel music industry. Well, the mission has not changed, HIT Awards were created to celebrate those who are triumphantly impacting the seven spheres of influence.
