The Season 5 Finale of Sunday Best started off with an All-Star tribute featuring Donnie McClurkin, Kirk Franklin and Marvin Sapp running through several gospel melodies.
The epic battle between Alexis Spight and Joshua Rodgers shows that Gospel music is really embracing the next gernearation of talent. I was surprised to find out that, BET Sunday Best has yet to have a male winner. Will Joshua Rodgers be the first?
Young Buck AKA Joshua Rogers performed “Rain on Us” by Earnest Pugh tonight and the crowd went crazy. Joshua sung the song so beautiful I could hear the angels in heaven rejoicing as I was completely lost in his performance.
Kirk Carr blessed us with Presence of The Lord tonight, and he ignited the the Sunday Best audience like I had never seen it before. As the camera man panned I caught a glimpse of Ashford Sanders and Michael Lampkin in the audience.
Baby Girl AKA Alexis Spight sung the old gospel hymn “Power of The Blood” and she was in full force tonight. Alexis’ red curly weave, black tights and white stunna shades were reminiscent of a young Mary J. Blidge. The gospel version to be exact.
Pastor Marvin L. Winans brought the house down when he sung Donnie McClurkin’s Draw Me Close. The crowd was completely in awe as the gospel legend blessed us with an amazing cover.
Just as I thought a winner would be announced, BET blessed us with another hour of Sunday BEST which I will speed pass….
One of my favorite singers, Ledisi, sung The Ladder.
Joshua Rogers received the “keys to the city” from his hometown of Greeleyville, South Carolina and his people came out in droves to support him.
With this being one of the greatest seasons in Sunday Best history, it was extremely hard for America to make a decision. However, the battle of the Young Bucks was won by none other than Joshua Rogers.Google+
