Having just celebrated its 10th anniversary as the number one gospel show on television, BET’s “Celebration of Gospel” moves into the new decade with a two-hour special premiering on Sunday, Jan. 30 at 8:00 p.m.

“Keeping the Faith” is this year’s show theme, setting the stage for a world premiere of new music from gospel superstars, Kirk Franklin and Mary Mary.  The lineup also includes performances from secular artists El DeBarge, Chaka Khan and Howard Hewitt.

Live performances and appearances from Byron Cage, Donnie McClurkin, Pastor Shirley Caesar, BeBe Winans and Smokie Norful will pay an in memoriam tribute to two of gospel music’s major generals: “Queen of Gospel” Albertina Walker and prolific songwriter/performer Bishop Walter Hawkins.
