Dillard told Martin he started out in three Stellar Award categories and now “we’ve moved to ten, it’s amazing and we’re certainly thankful to be here.”
When asked about the charismatic nature and stage presence of choir directors Dillard said, “It’s actually the joy of the Lord. As David danced before the Lord with all his might — this is what takes over me.”
“When I think of the goodness of God and how he has brought me and and kept me and I have survived the darts of the enemy. The joy of the Lord overtakes me, I’m going into a praise, I’m going into a dance and I am liberated to give God all that I have because of what he has done and who he is” said Dillard.
