‘Sunday Best’ Winners, Tamar Braxton Set For Celebration of Gospel

BET is prepping a supercharged celebration of gospel music with talent including "Sunday Best" winners Le'Andria Johnson and Joshua Rogers.

The network recently announced plans for its 13th season of BET "Celebration of Gospel" that will also include a performance from R&B singer/reality personality Tamar Braxton.

With musical director Ray Chew at the helm, you can also expect performances from Israel Houghton & New Breed, Dorinda Clark Cole, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Karen Clark Sheard, and Yolanda Adams .

Other chart-topping artists ready to raise the praise are gospel super stars Kierra “Kiki” Sheard, Isaac Carree, Canton Jones, Da T.R.U.T.H., Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Choir and "Sunday Best" finalist Jessica Reedy.

In addition, multi-award-winning artists Dr. Bobby Jones, Kurt Carr, Donnie McClurkin and Rance Allen will lead the way in a high-energy, all-star tribute to the undisputed “King of Gospel Music,” Reverend James Cleveland. Each gospel great scheduled to appear was inspired not only by Reverend Cleveland’s music, but also by his charity, vision and ability to mesmerize audiences with his riveting live performances.

“Celebration of Gospel” tapes at the historic Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles on Saturday, March 16, 2013 and airs on BET on Sunday, April 7, 2013.
