It was a star-studded night at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, California as BET celebrated the 12th Annual Celebration of Gospel. With great performances from James Fortune, Faith Evans, Le’Andria Johnson, Zacardi Cortez, Kirk Franklin, Mali Music, Jennifer Holliday, to star-studded tributes to Mahalia Jackson and Whitney Houston, this was, in my opinion, the best Celebration of Gospel to date.
True to its tradition of blending R&B and gospel artists for unique, and powerful experiences – this years theme “Rise Up! Renew! Rejoice,” is fitting for tonight’s airing, which also falls on Palm Sunday.
Hosted by Steve Harvey, the show airs tonight, April 1st on BET. You don’t want to miss it. I can’t wait to relive the experience of watching it live!
