Bauer Takes Home Trophy for Praise And Worship Album of the Year and Children’s Song of the Year

(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Nov. 9, 2012—Singer/songwriter and worship artist Jon Bauer garnered multiple honors at the 34th Annual GMA Canada Covenant Awards held on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at the Crossroads Centre in Burlington, Ontario. Bauer, this year’s leading nominee, took home trophies for Praise and Worship Album of the Year and Children’s Song of the Year.

Bauer, who already has three career Covenant Awards to his credit, was a repeat winner in the category of Children’s Song of the Year, this year for “Chasing After Me,” a No. 1 single on the Canadian Christian radio charts. Forevermore, Bauer’s acclaimed January 2012 release, earned him his first award for Praise and Worship Album of the Year.

“I am very grateful for both of these awards,” says Bauer. “I am also humbled that God has used my music to turn people’s eyes and hearts toward Jesus. The Covenant Awards is always one of the highlights of my year, as I love getting together with my fellow artists to be encouraged and to encourage others that are singing in Jesus’ name.”

In addition to recognition as an awards nominee and recipient, Bauer performed at the evening’s event alongside other all-star artists including Newworldson, Downhere, Starfield and High Valley. The program will air tomorrow, Nov. 10, on CTS. Visit: for more information.
