The good news of Jesus Christ doesn’t really need any help to be worthy of celebration, but the 2016 Celebration of Gospel via BET gave us a variety of expressions and styles of gospel music – there was something for everyone to celebrate!
Hosted by NAACP Award, BET Award, and Golden Globe Award winner, Taraji P. Henson, the Celebration of Gospel took us all to church, to the block party, to Christian rap night at the club, and back again – with the biggest names in gospel music, e.g. Yolanda Adams, Donnie McClurkin, Kirk Franklin, Tye Tribbet, Erica Campbell, Shirley Caesar, John P. Kee, Jonathan McReynolds, Travis Greene, Tamela Mann, and more – paired with R&B greats like Chaka Khan, Chrisette Michele, and Anthony Hamilton.
It was one of the more memorable Celebration of Gospel shows in recent years, and always a much needed and appreciated platform to share the joy of gospel music with the world. Here are a few clips from the evening to celebrate again, and again.
