The 14th BET Celebration of Gospel show will air tonight. While Steven Harvey had hosted the show, Academy-Award nominated actress Taraji P. Henson was tapped this year to host the much anticipated Christian concert of the year for Black Americans and those who love Gospel music. Information on how to watch the program on live stream can be found below.
"I'm going to tell you, you are going to be moved! The talent, it blows your head back," Henson told The Christian Post. "It makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up."
From Charlie Wilson's lively set which was arguably the night's top performance to Yolanda Adam's evangelical fervor, the show brought together top artists from both the secular and gospel music worlds. Wilson will give his testimony of how God has brought him from being homeless on the street to the top of Black Gospel music industry.
The performing artists include Deitrick Haddon, Tamela Mann, Sisters with Voices, SWV, and Kenny Lattimore. Meanwhile, Tye Tribbett was joined Donnie McClurkin in a joint performance. India Arie performed with Jonathan McReynolds. Other performers include "American Idol" winner Ruben Studdard, LeAnd Johnson, soulful crooner Kem, Lalah Hathaway, Zacardi Cortez, Chante Moore and Vashawn Mitchell.
"Celebration of Gospel" was taped in March 22nd at The Orpheum Theater on Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, CA. It premieres tonight, April 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and 7 p.m. CT on BET. Meanwhile, if you can't watch the show on BET, the Celebration of Gospel 2014 full show will be made available for watching online free through live streaming on BET's website.
