BET Host The Annual Celebration Of Gospel

BET Host The Annual Celebration Of Gospel

April 8, 2014 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

The annual Celebration of Gospel ceremony took place on Sunday April 6th and this weekend the inspirational show airs in the UK.

With loveable actress Taraji P. Henson hosting this year, the BET event is promised to ‘blow your head back’, as the 14th annual event left viewers feeling hopeful, positive and ready for whatever trials the world may throw their way.

“I’m funny but a lot of times they get comedians or personalities,” Taraji said of her role as presenter and being asked to put her own mark on the show. “I was just very, very honoured. And then when I met with the executives I got goosebumps. We all did because it just felt like the perfect marriage.”

Performers for the night include Donnie McClurkin, Tamela Mann, Tye Tribbett, Charlie Wilson, Monica, Ronald Isley and more. Plus word has it, Taraji was particularly left impressed by a particular performer.

“Charlie Wilson just does it for me because he performs and then gives you his testimonial about where he came from and how God saved him. It felt like the building was levitating. That was the energy in there, the synergy in there was magnetic.”
