Donnie McClurkin, Erica Campbell, Michelle Williams, Gladys Knight, and Fred Hammond all are nominated for Outstanding Gospel Album. Each has had a great year in their own right. Erica Campbell stepped into the solo spotlight from her group Mary Mary with her album “Help.” Donnie McClurkin was joined by friends on his “Duets” project. Former Destiny’s Child star, Michelle Williams had everyone singing “Say Yes” (with Beyonce and Kelly) from her “Journey to Freedom” album. Fred Hammond, after his double knee replacement, proved he’s still got it on his CD “I Will Trust.” While the legendary Gladys Knight got back to gospel heritage with her album “Where My Heart Belongs.”
The show will air live tonight 9 PM EST/8 CST on TV One from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, CA.
