taraji p henson (cog)*Award winning actress Taraji P. Henson was the talk of the carpet for this 2014 “Celebration of Gospel.”

On Saturday, March 15, 2014, thousands crowded the Orpheum Theatre to catch a glimpse of some of the finest voices of all genres to celebrate the sound of Gospel and EURweb was on the scene.

However, Taraji was the melody that set the tone of talk on the red carpet.

Fellow Howard University alumnus, Omarosa, was excited to see Taraji’s debut. Gospel great, Tamela Mann supported her fully while Uncle Charlie said she’s going to be hot!

When EURweb associate, LaCora Stephens, asked Henson about the new role of host, she responded:

“My salvation is based in faith. This is home for me, I’m not nervous, I feel like I have the support of the people.  People who love God, don’t hate.”

She went on to discuss her role of Cookie in Lee Daniels’ new TV drama “Empire.” She also dished about upcoming film of “Think Like a Man Too.” Watch!

Be sure to watch Taraji host the “Celebration of Gospel” when it airs on Sunday, April 06, 2014 at 8pm/EST on BET.
