Product Description

BET takes you higher with Celebration of Gospel. This annual star-studded musical event features appearances and performances by Grammy Award winners Kirk Franklin and Yolanda Adams, Fantasia (of American Idol fame), Pastor Shirley Caesar, Fred Hammond and more, with a special tribute to actor/writer/director Tyler Perry (Madea’s Family Reunion).

Amazon.com

Staged under the auspices of the BET Network, the 2007 edition of the "annual musical praise-fest" known as Celebration of Gospel: Taking You Higher! has all trappings of a big-time pop event: a fancy venue (the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles) with a tony crowd, slick production values (lights, sets, costumes, and so on), a big, powerful backing band… even an American Idol connection. But although you can take the music out of the church, you can't take the church out of the music, and this hour-long show, which brings together some of contemporary gospel's biggest names, is a joyous, inspired, and unrestrained display of worship and soul. Aside from the individuals involved (Yolanda Adams, Kirk Franklin, Fred Hampton, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Kelly Price, Tye Tribbett, and former Idol champ Fantasia are among them), what's perhaps most striking is the incredible energy level, both onstage and in the audience, from start (a fiery performance by Caesar and Adams, who comes on like a sanctified Tina Turner) to finish. While there are traditional elements in evidence, like Loretta Devine's straightforward delivery of "The Lord's Prayer," a certain pop/R&B sensibility permeates much of the music: Hampton tears it up with one of his patented "old skool jams," rapping and rocking through a number that evokes Luther Vandross and Earth, Wind & Fire; a quartet of older (and unidentified) ladies wail on what could easily pass for a lowdown, foot-stomping blues; and Fantasia, joined by three other young performers (Lil' Mo, Coko, and Kiki Sheard), indulges in the kind of vocal acrobatics heard every week on the world's most popular TV show. Yet there's something else going on here, a level of commitment reflected both in the constant Hallelujahs and the inimitable backbeat, alternately rocking and swinging, that takes gospel music both higher and deeper. The DVD includes a brief behind-the-scenes featurette and a couple of extra performances. --Sam Graham

A Great show, very inspiring! I watch this show every year on BET and so glad this is now available. I love the mix of contemporary and down-home gospel music. The reunion on stage with Shirley Ceasar and the Caravans is classic and you won't see them anywhere else. My kids even enjoyed watching with me! Of course Kirk Franklin, Yolanda Adams and Tye Tribbett never disappoint with their energy and God-given talent! I highly recommend this one.

I had some idea of what type of enjoyment I would receive from this CD, however, after listening for the 10th time, we were blessed beyond compare. Hearing all of the artists who performed to the Glory of God blessed my inner man. A friend was by on Christmas morning, and asked repeatedly where and when I could purchase a copy of this CD ASAP. The variety and blend of worship with the spoken Word was tremendous. What a honor to listen to repeatedly! This was one of my best gifts to myself.

This was just a wonderful CD. It moved me to tears. I listened to it with one of my friends, and immediately realized that I must have it. It spoke directly to my spirit. I felt as if this were my life. God is so good. In this CD we had a little of the old, a little of the new and just a whole lot of praising God. Everyone should own a copy of this CD.

I wish I could purchase every year that Steve Harvey has hosted the Celebration of Gospel. Little Mo needs a new manager, to be able to sing like that and be a Rapper is a down right shame. She needs a recording label, Fantasia, I love her live performances and the Caravans OMG that's classic gospel. Shirley Cesar you can always tell whos the captain of her ship. I love it!!
