Tons of A-List Gospel artist spoke with our Red Carpet Correspondent “Goo Goo” about how they were excited to be in the room honoring living legends.

The luncheon began around noon with an opening prayer from Pastor Joseph and Yolanda Morgan, parents of Stellar Award Nominated Artist Wess Morgan. After the prayer a delicious lunch was served,and the luncheon was under way. Kirk Franklin received the award for “BMI Song Of The Year”for his hit single, “I Smile“. “I Smile“has been performed over 50ok times and did record breaking numbers on the Billboard Charts. The Walls Group, a newly signed act to Franklin’s label payed tribute to Franklin. This young group had the likes of Lexi Allen, Pastor Shirley Caesar, and others on their feet as they sang their acoustic version of Franklin’s “I Smile“.


Donnie McClurkin served as host for the beginning of the afternoon as the Kurt Carr tribute began.  Donald Lawrence & Company returned this year as the backing ensemble for the afternoon, and opened up with “In the Sanctuary”. While no group can compare to that of the Kurt Carr Singers, the Company under the direction of GrSheri Jones Moffett singing "I Almost Let Go"(Photo Credit: BMI) ammy Award Winning recording artist Donald Lawrence, and three time Stellar Award winning recording artist DeWayne Woods, added their classic sound to  every song.  After the Company got the crowd on their feet, the event went into over drive. Lisa Knowles of the Brown Singerss took the stage to sing “My Soul Loves Jesus”, and just when you thought the praise couldn’t go any higher, Sheri Jones-Moffett followed behind with her rendition of the Kurt Carr chart topper, ” I Almost Let Go” . In the middle of the song, Moffett began to testify about how a few years back she didn’t even want to sing anymore, but thought back to the goodness of Jesus and how he kept her throughout the years. Needless to say after that testimony, there wasn’t a person sitting down.

To finish the tribute, Sunday Best Season 4 Winner Amber Bullock, added her unique tone to “For Every Mountain“, mixing her style of soul, jazz, and classic Gospel vocals to present a beautiful arrangement to a man who deserved all the accolades being given that afternoon.

A solemn moment came in the luncheon when BMI Vice President Catherine Brewton honored Marvin McQuitty Jr.with the first ever Lifetime Achievement Award. McQuitty was a long time drummer in the industry and had worked on the trailblazers luncheon for many years.  The dynamic house band included an A-list of musicians such as Joe Wilson, Jonathan Dubose, Joel Smith, and Stanley Brown just to name a few.

CeCe Winans kicked off the second half of the afternoon with tributes for Edwin Hawkins.

Morton who sang “Oh Happy Day“.  Gospel twins Jason and Jonathan Nelson had the entire room moving as they sang “I Need Your Spirit“, and Kierra Sheard stood beautifully on stage and sang “This Day“. A serious moment of the afternoon arose when gospel legend LaShun Pace took the stage to sing “God Will Take Care of You“. LaShun, whose dealt with recent challenges in her health brought tears to many eyes as she delivered the message of how through it all God continues to keep her. Shortly after, Edwin Hawkins was presented with the BMI Trailblazers Award and encouraged the audience to continue to pray for others in this industry.

Light Records’ newest artist Anaysha Figueroa proved that she has what it takes to be a front runner in Gospel music as she sang one of Hawkins leading songs “Holy One“.



By this time the power of GOD was so heavy in the place and Yolanda Adams took the microphone to sing “He Brought Me“. CeCe Winans joined in on a reprise of the song and then introduced Le’Andria Johnson as she finished the afternoon with “Changed“.  This was the pivotal moment as CeCe Winans passed the microphone to Tramaine Hawkins who claimed, she had a cold but took the room into a frenzy.
