Season 10 of ‘Sunday Best’ Will Return to BET on July 5th
America’s most inspirational singing competition, Sunday Best, will premiere its 10th season on BET on July 5th. Hosted again by Grammy-award winning gospel legend Kirk Franklin, the show will have a live audience and band as it broadcast from Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.
Returning along with Franklin are morning show host and singer Erica Campbell, singer-songwriter Jonathan McReynolds, and R&B singer Kelly Price as judges. The highly anticipated, season 10 will feature exclusive performances from today’s chart-topping artists including Yolanda Adams, Marvin Sapp, Mali Music, season 9’s winner, Melvin Crispell, III with additional performers set to be announced in the forthcoming weeks.
In light of COVID-19, this season had to utilize new and innovative technology, techniques, and artist-generated content to complete the production of episodes four through eight. This will allow the audience to join in on weekly praise and worship at a time when America needs it most.
Auditions were held at the House of Hope in Atlanta earlier this year for the popular singing competition. During the auditions, the hopefuls had to perform from a list of sixteen songs, that include gospel classics like “Amazing Grace,” “His Eye Is on the Sparrow,” “Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus,” and “Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior.” The season premiere will highlight the results of these auditions as fans guess who will be the next Sunday Best.
The winner of this season will receive a recording contract with RCA Inspiration, a cash prize of $50,000 and the title “Sunday Best.” He or she will also join the ranks of other successful gospel artists who launched their careers on the show like LeAndria Johnson, Amber Bullock, and Tasha Page-Lockhart.
Season 10 premieres on July 5 at 8pm ET/PT.
