God Songs – GMA Auctions

With rumors of trouble at the Gospel Music Association it seems they are trying new ways to raise money to make up for the increasing deficit. Hopefully they can sort things out. I mean the Dove awards are an important part of recognizing some of the best God songs. I have no idea what is true and what is rumor about the goings on at the GMA . I think by looking at the auctions listings it is pretty obvious that they are out of touch. Nothing against Amy Grant or Michael W. Smith they are an important part of what Christian music is today. The fact that they are donating time and an experience for bidders is wonderful. The Christmas Coffee with Amy Grant VIP Experience sounds great for any Amy Grant fan it is currently the highest bid in the auction. Coming in second is recording time with Michael W. Smith, a great opportunity to record some God songs in Smith’s home studio.

I’m just not sure that any of the items are all that relevant. As I said earlier I don’t mean to insult fans of the Christian music artists that have donated things for the auctions. I just wonder is the GMA losing touch. If the rumors are true would it be for the best for a “new guard” to take control of the GMA. Where is a day with Skillet or Kutless? How about a day to hang out with TFK? I might be inspired to bid on a couple hour BS session with Thousand Foot Krutch about their God Songs.

In my opinion which I know means all of squadoosh I feel that a big opportunity is being squandered by the GMA. Why not capitalize on the fact that now more than ever Christian acts are reaching audiences on the other side of the big high fence between secular and Christian music? Consumers are speaking with their wallets at the record shop so it should be obvious what would raise the most money.

Check out the auction what are your thoughts on the items? Please understand I’m not faulting the items that are there or the artists that donated them I just think there are some missing. I may even go over and bid on the Epiphone autographed by MercyMe.
