Emmy Award-winner and co-host of ABC's The View, Sherri Shepherd will host the 42nd Annual GMA Dove Awards, the Gospel Music Association (GMA) has announced.

Featuring 40-plus categories, the 2011 Dove Awards will be held in Atlanta's historic Fox Theatre on April 20—the first time the show will take place outside of Nashville. The show will air Easter Sunday, April 24, on the Atlanta-based Gospel Music Channel.

GMA Chairman of the Board Ed Leonard said that Shepherd's "talent and magnetic personality, coupled with her love of music, is a perfect fit for the show."

Shepherd added: "Hosting the Dove Awards in Atlanta means a hot night of godly music and comedy."
