Mary Mary to reunite at 2018 Stellar Gospel Music Awards ceremony + full lineup
They’re getting back together again—at least for a night.
Gospel music's favorite GRAMMY® Award-winning sister act, Mary Mary, is set to perform at the 2018 Stellar Gospel Music Awards ceremony.
Last year, Erica and Tina Campbell made it clear to supporters that they were focused on their solo aspirations exclusively. But, who knows? This Stellar reunion could be the launching pad for a more formal and permanent reuniting.
Aside from Mary Mary re-linking, there are lots of other exciting performances on the bill for the 33rd Annual show.
Performers scheduled to appear include: Travis Greene, Kierra Sheard, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Tye Tribbett, Jonathan McReynolds, Anthony Brown & group therAPy, Todd Dulaney, Tasha Page-Lockhart, Ricky Dillard & New G, and more.
The festivities for Gospel’s biggest night of the year will be hosted by Kirk Franklin at Las Vegas' Orleans Arena, Saturday, March 24, 2018.
For those who can’t be in attendance at the live taping, the telecast will premiere’s on TV One Friday, March 30 at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. Through broadcast syndication, it will show up on 130 stations in more than 110 markets around the country March 31 - May 6, 2018.
About hosting the celebration, Franklin said, "Since my first step onto the Stellar Awards stage as a 23-year-old kid from Texas, I've lived, breathed and committed all I've had to this incredible genre called gospel.”
He continued, "To find myself now still blessed to serve the community I love so dearly as their host of the 2018 Stellar Awards, that young kid feels alive again and more grateful than ever. We're working hard to bring to the world the best and the brightest along with the icons and legends, the greatest night of God's music at a time when the country needs our melody the most. Thank you and I'll see you in Vegas."
The show will also include an all-star tribute to the late Edwin Hawkins, with his sister Lynette Hawkins accepting the Edwin Hawkins Icon Award in his honor. The gospel luminary passed away on January 15, 2018.
