HISTORY of the Southwest Regional Gospel Music Awards Ceremony & Concert (GMAAC)

The premier production of the GMAAC was held at the Bell County Expo Center located in Temple Texas in 1993.  The next year, in 1994, the production was held at the Fort Hood Military Installation. 

Mayor Raul G. Villaronga of the City of Killeen, Texas was an honored guest of the event and presented the GMAAC with a proclamation as the “Official Founders of the Central Texas Gospel Music Awards”.  The proclamation acknowledged the event as a tremendous outreach program that brought to the Central Texas community together.   Since then, two more cities, Austin and El Paso Texas were added as production sites for this community-wide Gospel music appreciation event.

With the support of many churches of all denominations as well as the support of local area businesses, each presentation of the GMAAC continues to “give back” to each community.



The productions of the GMAAC promotes the Gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, through many forms of gospel talent ministries.  Individuals from churches of all denominations, who honor GOD’S magnificence through the gifts they have been blessed to share, are brought together for an appreciation showing of love and support of their hard work that inspires us all.
