BET recently announced that Grammy winners, Yoland Adams and Cece Winans will join Donnie McClurkin as judges on the popular singing show. Kirk Franklin will return as the host, reports GospelNewsroom.com.
BET’s Sunday Best is responsible for unleashing virtual unknowns like Crystal Aikins, Y’anna Crawley, Le’Andria Johnson and their most recent winner Amber Bullock into the stratosphere of the music world, making them all household names in Gospel.
While many fans/viewers of the show voiced their disapproval over the last few seasons of former judge Tina Campbell’s (Mary Mary) harsh comments toward contestant, it still drew fans to watch the show weekly, making Sunday Best a rating hit.
Auditions for the new season will be held:
- March 24 in Dallas at The Potters House
- March 31 in Glen Dale, MD at the Reid Temple AME Church
- April 14 in Decatur, GA at The Greater Travelers Rest Baptist
- April 21 in St. Louis at Friendly Temple MBC.
