Weekend Roundup: Winans, Pugh, Moss, Mary Mary and more

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Well it was another nonstop weekend for Gospel Music

The “hardest working woman in show business “ Vickie Winans began Thanksgiving Day in worship at Memphis’  Temple of Deliverance Church of God in Christ,  then appeared in  concert in Columbus, OH on Friday.  Trying to keep up with her was the equally as hard working Earnest Pugh who after making his acting debut on  TV One’s Rickey Smiley Show celebrated his birthday on Friday, passed through Columbus on Saturday and then shared the stage with Beverly Crawford, DeWayne Woods, Leandria Johnson and Tyronn Wilkins in Spartanburg, SC for an Evening of Worship on Sunday at Evangel Temple.


Miami native and hip hop superstar Flo Rida was the host for the Big Dreams for Kids Foundation’s  Gospel Explosion on Saturday at Carol City Park.  The free event drew a capacity crowd to see special guests J Moss, Deitrick Haddon and Mary Mary.  James Hall and Worship and Praise returned to Montreal on Saturday  for a concert appearance at the Outrement Theater. Canada holds a special place in Hall’s heart as his Stellar Award nominated Trip Down Memory Lane  was recorded in Toronto and King of Glory was recorded in Montreal in 1995.

Donnie McClurkin joined Bishop Marvin Winans in Johannesburg South Africa for Perfecting Church International’s 2012 Holy Convocation.  Byron Cage joined the ranks of fellow radio angels Donnie McClurkin and Yolanda Adams with the debut of Sunday Joy airing  from noon to 4pm each Sunday on DC’s Praise 104.1 FM, a Radio One station.  Cage was feted with a brunch at the Carlyle Club in Alexandria for the show’s first broadcast and many well wishers were on hand including Tye Tribett.
