The star studded event Co-Hosted by Pastor Paula White & Celebrity Guest will pay tribute to NBA Players, NBA Coaches, Sports Figures, Local Pastors, and high profile individuals who effect change in the lives of others and portray a positive image that is both inspiring and motivating.  The event will consist of red carpet arrivals, special celebrity guest, and uplifting musical performances from National Recording Artist James Fortune & Fiya, Brain Courtney Wilson and more names added this week. 

“For the past 7 years we’ve brought Faith and Inspiration to NBA All-Star Weekend, the FIRST & ONLY Gospel Event working in conjunction with NBA Entertainment,” exclaimed Tomeka B. Holyfield, Creator and Executive Producer of the All-Star Gospel Celebration.  “It is an exciting time for the local community, NBA Players and their loved ones to take a moment and acknowledge the phenomenal nominee’s and the incredible work they’ve done in the community.  So many times we are bombarded with negative images of professional athletes, and pastors, but we rarely hear about the individuals who are making a difference in people’s lives.  This platform allows us to applaud them for their amazing compassion and dedication to people.” All while enjoying the HOTTEST Gospel Concert!
