Over a decade has gone by, but the Stellar Awards are back on Black Entertainment Television…and presented by AT&T!
Fans will get the chance to recognize the artists who’ve paved a creative way of worship. The Stellar Gospel Awards last aired on BET in 2005. Now, the latest taping of the 34th annual ceremony, hosted by Kirk Franklin, will begin March 29th.
Stellar Awards Executive Producer and Founder Don Jackson shared with Deadline, “It was 35 years ago when Aretha performed ‘Precious Lord’ on my very first Gospel Music television special ‘Living the Dream.’ In recognition of Aretha’s roots in Gospel Music and her continuing love for the genre, I am delighted that our executive committee agreed to present her with our ICON Award posthumously and continue to present the award forever in her name as the Aretha Franklin ICON Award.”
Everyone will enjoy a musical tribute for Aretha Franklin by Kelly Price, Erica Campbell, and Regina Belle. Other artists gracing the stage are Charles Jenkins, Brian Courtney Wilson, Yolanda Adams, and many more. Even Snoop Dogg will be in attendance as a nominee in three categories.
Get ready to get your praise on Friday, April 19th!
