Good Enough Mother Inspiration: The Stellar Awards Delivers BIG TIME! (VIDEO)

Disclosure: this post is in conjunction with AT&T. All opinions are my own.

Whew! I try not to get too worked up before bed but Easter Sunday, I made an exception.. And I am so glad I did.

I was one of the millions of viewers who watched the Stellar Awards broadcast on BET on Easter Sunday.

Featuring a mix of well-known and up and coming voices in gospel music, the event was truly a star-studded one that started on the red carpet and carried on through the evening.

Aretha Franklin, Icon Award recipient

When I was growing up as a kid in Sacramento, the queen of soul, Aretha Franklin was a staple on the turntables (yes, turntables), her voice honed from her years growing up singing in her father’s Detroit Church.

Sadly, that voice was silenced after Aretha died in August of last year so it was fitting to see the Queen of Soul receive 34th Annual Stellar Awards award Aretha the Icon Award posthumously.

The Stellar Awards are always a Who’s Who in the gospel music scene and this year was no different. Brian Courtney Wilson, Charles Jenkins, Jekalyn Carr, Jonathan McReynolds, Kelontae Gavin, Koryn Hawthorne, Maranda Curtis and Todd Dulaney performed with the crown prince of gospel music, Kirk Franklin, holding down hosting duties.

Jonathon McReynolds

Music, praise and just a whole lot of joy emanated from the screen but the night belonged to big winner McReynolds who walked away with 8 trophies including artist of the year, male vocalist of the year and song of the year to name just a few.

Congratulations to ALL the night’s winners but it was truly US who were blessed!

    I missed the Stellar Awards on Easter Sunday but recorded a rebroadcast on Bounce which I just finished watching. I agree with you that the show was quite inspirational! The performances were great! Especially the tribute to Icon Award recipient Aretha Franklin! Also enjoyed Hezikiah Walker’s opening and Jekalyn Carr’s closing that had her kicking off her shoes like Patti LaBelle or Fantasia! And, what a talent and blessing Jonathan McReynolds is! So humble, too. Watching the Stellar Awards was quite uplifting on a day when I am feeling a little low.

Combing the aisles at Target in search of the best deal on Cheerios, it hit Rene Syler like the stench of a dirty diaper on a hot summer’s day. Not only is perfection overrated its utterly impossible! Suddenly empowered, she figuratively donned her cape, scooped up another taco kit for dinner and Good Enough Mother was born.
