As TobyMac and DiverseCity closed out the west coast Winter Jam tour in Fresno, CA last night, news spread that he had won the American Music Award for Favorite Contemporary/Inspirational Artist. The 40th Annual American Music Awards aired live on ABC from the NOKIA Theatre L.A., and for the sixth year, fans determined the winners by voting online.
When learning he had won the award TobyMac said, “This is my first AMA! I still can't believe it. It is so meaningful to me because the people I'm thinking about when I'm writing these songs are the ones who vote. Thank YOU guys from the bottom of my heart!"
