Kelly Price opens up Sunday Best this week as the top six contestants sing for their chance to win a multitude of prizes. At the end of the show, two people will go home. Kirk Franklin came out with a respectable wardrobe; beige suit with more buttons than old ladies’ sewing collection. A major improvement from last week’s abysmal multicolor blazer. Venold Junior Johnson was the first to perform. He performed a reggae song (What A Friend We Have In Jesus), which sounded fantastic.
Mentor Kim Burell told me he need make the audience enjoy song. Judges Yolanda Adams, CeCe Winans, and Donnie McClurkin were in agreeance; Adams said he was the epitome of what Sunday Best is. Paula Champion was next to perform. She sang I’m Still Here and she knocked her performance out of the park. The best performance of the night, indeed. Adams said she depth of soul and Winans thought her performance was a blessing.
Tasha Page Lockhart performed third with I Am God. While she struggled in the beginning and screamed her notes out throughout the song, the judges praised her as a joy to watch. Donnie McClurkin said her relationship with God is prevalent and genuine.
The young buck of the show, Odell Bunton Jr. was fourth to perform. He sand Ain’t No Need To Worry by the Winans. He sounded soulful but he performance was tired and unenergetic. However, Adams said that she loved the way he attacked the song. McClurkin did say that his pitch was off but that he shouldn’t stop being him. Kefia Rollerson, one of the best singers on the show performed fifth.
She sang Awesome God and the only thing I could say is that her voice is very powerful. Burell said she seemed a bit uptight but she improved that when it came time to perform. CeCe Winans said she took control of the stage and Donnie McClurkin thanked her for her performance. The sixth and last performance of the night was Tyler Little with Let The Praise Begin by Fred Hammond. His performance was definitely in the top three of the night; awesome is just one word to describe it. Adams said he had swag and CeCe said that song woke him up. She said that he could get too relaxed but this song brought him out.
The first and youngest male winner of Sunday Best, Joshua Rogers, performed to break up some of the tension; two people are going home tonight, after all. In a shocking move, Paula Champion was sent home despite her having the best performance of the night. Odell Bunton Jr. was also sent home tonight.
