Ten awards were handed out during the 2-hour live telecast in primetime on UP Television Network. As a part of the pre-show activities, 28 additional awards were announced during ceremonies held on Friday and Saturday. All Stellar winners are selected by online voters. Spirited and engaging, Sherri Shepherd (“The View”) and Rickey Smiley (“Dish Nation”) added just the right comedic flair to their job as hosts and Smiley treated the audience to a taste of his beloved church lady sketch, “Bernice Jenkins.” This year’s celebration began with Tye Tribbett hosting a live stream of the star-studded red carpet arrivals that featured Gospel greats, television, film and political luminaries.

Power and praise were on full display from the evening’s opening performance as Hezekiah Walker & The Love Fellowship Choir delivered a spirited version of “Every Praise” with praise dancers. Erica Campbell, Jekalyn Carr, Latice Crawford and Lexi united for the Female Collaboration and performed a medley that included “A Little More Jesus,” “Greater Is Coming,” “There” and “Abide.” One commanding performance was followed by another as Anthony Brown & Group Therapy continued to raise the level with “Testimony”; “The Gift” by Donald Lawrence & Company inspired the near capacity audience to get out of their seats.
A highlight of the night was Jennifer Holliday bringing the house down with “Make Them Hear You.” Joining forces for the quartet collaboration were The Canton Spirituals, The Gospel Legends and The Wardlaw Brothers and Ricky Dillard closed the show on a high note singing “Amazing.” Shirley Caesar, Tasha Cobbs, Isaac Carree, and Kirk Franklin all delivered passionate performances for the Gospel music lovers in attendance.
