A strong line up of recording artists will take the stage at the 2013 Super Bowl Gospel Celebration (SBGC) in New Orleans.
In addition to Kirk Franklin, who will host, Bishop Morton, Fantasia, Lecrae and Donnie McClurkin are slated to perform.
The annual celebration is sanctioned by the NFL as one of several events that take place every year in the days and hours leading up to professional football's biggest night.
"In its fourteenth year, the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration is the first and only gospel event sanctioned by the NFL for Super Bowl Weekend. The concert series features Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum selling gospel and contemporary Christian and mainstream artists, marquee NFL players and the NFL PLAYERS Choir," organizers report. "Since its inception, the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration has demonstrated growth year-over-year, with recent sell-outs of venues in Super Bowl host cities including San Diego, Tampa, Detroit, Jacksonville and Houston. The event also serves as a fundraiser with a portion of the proceeds benefiting national and local charities. Close to $400,000 and 5,000 tickets have been donated over the last eleven years."
