“Part of my reasoning and/or thinking as new director is I wanted to try some different things, so we wanted to try genre-specific,” Mondaine explains. “That’s not to say that that’s something that we’re going to be doing going forward. It’s something that we wanted to do with this induction in particular. In times past whenever we had inductions and we had Christian artists, it could get a little weird… inducting a Christian artist with a secular artist.”
