Screen shot 2014 05 01 at 8.22.49 PM Report:  BET Cancels Celebration of Gospel

 

It is said all good things must come to an end.  And, if news sources are to be believed, the latest good thing coming to a close is BET’s top rated religious program ‘Celebration of Gospel’.

After 14 years of seeing its stages graced by the best of R&B and gospel including legends Whitney Houston and The Clark Sisters to new schoolers Monica, Destiny’s Child, and more, the show appeared to be at the height of its popularity.  As the 2014 edition, hosted by Academy Award-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson, boasted the series’ best ratings ever,  fans believed the show’s newest slogan of “forward in faith” was fitting indication that it was moving full speed ahead.

As fans know, no two singers have paid more homage to the late great Whitney Houston than ‘The Boy Is Mine’ co-stars Brandy & Monica.  So, it would only be fitting that they would take to tonight’s stage to tribute their idol in what many will say came as the highlight of the 2012 BET Awards.

Kicking off with Monica’s soul-stirring rendition of ‘I Love the Lord’ followed by Brandy’s electric ‘I’m Your Baby Tonight’/‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ medley, the two divas blazed the stage like never before in Houston’s honor.

With excitement still at a high from the showing(s), Mo took to Twitter to share a snap of the two backstage.  As ever, we at That Grape Juice salute Whitney and Monica/Brandy for being the reminders that there are still vocalists left who nurture their crafts without the assistance of studio magic!  See their performances here.
