John 5:5, 8, and 9

(5) And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. (8) Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. (9) And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

Word of the Week

Gospel’s biggest night did not disappoint as the 31st Annual Stellar Awards returned to the city of Las Vegas to celebrate Gospel music and the people who make it while actress/comedian Sherri Shephard and TV/radio personality Rickey Smiley also returned as the co-hosts.

 

While in town for the Nevada Democratic Caucuses, Democratic Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance at the 2016 Stellar Awards ceremony. Clinton said in an interview after her appearance that the visit “lifted her spirits” in the midst of a busy primary season.

 

Anthony Brown and group therAPy made Stellar Award history as the Tyscot recording artists and their new album “Everyday Jesus” received 10 nominations and won in each category. After his big winning night at the 31st Annual Stellar Awards and Kirk Franklin’s shout out to him at the Grammy Awards, Anthony Brown has now cemented his role as the new king of Gospel music.

 

Other multiple winners included Charles Jenkins and Fellowship Chicago, the Rance Allen Group, Tasha Cobbs and Tina Campbell.  One of the most memorable moments was the James Cleveland Award tribute to the late Olanda Draper featuring a reunion of his beloved choir the Associates coupled with fellow Brat Pack members Ricky Dillard, Donald Lawrence and Hezekiah Walker.  The 2 hour telecast will make its debut on Sunday, March 6th on TV One and then begin its national syndication on 150 stations in over 120 markets between March 12th and April 10th.
