I’m a little salty…but I must say congrats to Yolanda Adams on her win for Best Gospel in last nights BET Awards 2012! She is an amazing talent and I do truly enjoy her music. And that performance with her, Amber Bullock, Jessica Reedy and Y’anna Crawley was superb! The ladies performed “You Brought The Sunshine” by the Clark Sisters (watch it here), making this the second time this year the Clark Sisters have been performed on a major television network. The first was during the 2012 Grammys Pre-Show, when Kelly Price, LeAndria Johnson, Trin-i-tee 5:7 and Kim Burrell performed “Livin.”
It was good to see BET honor gospel music and its artists, even if they did try to rush Yolanda off as she was giving her acceptance speech *insert side-eye* (but I gotta listen to Nicki Minaj give her speech, girl bye!). Anyhoo, it was good to see that not all was lost after the gospel performance as many of the winner thanked God, and even Frankie Beverly saying that if we would wait on Him, and be patient, He’ll show some things. Even Rev. Al Sharpton was encouraging.
One thing I liked about Yolanda Adam’s acceptance speech was that she didn’t degrade or put down the secular artists. She told them that we are all needed in this and encouraged every one to use their gifts responsibly! Congrats again to Yolanda Adams on her win and shout out to every one nominated. Next year BET needs to let the fellas of Gospel do it real good one time!!
