Exclusive: BMI Trailblazers Of Gospel Luncheon Hosts/Performers Announced

Published by Torrence Glenn on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 at 3:12 pm.


As I’ve mentioned before, this weekend I’ll be in Nashville for the 25th Annual Stellar Awards.  And like I’ve also mentioned, like any other awards show,  some the best events are the ones that happen before and after the actual show.  For example,  Clive Davis’ star studded (we use that term to much but it works) Pre – Grammy party is probably the biggest event that weekend outside of the Grammy’s.  Well, when it comes to gospel and the Stellar Awards, the annual BMI Trailblazers Of Gospel Luncheon would be Clive’s equivalent!  This will be my first time attending the Stellar Awards as well as the Trailblazer’s Luncheon and after finding out who’s performing and presenting, I’m even more excited to attend the “invitation-only” affair. (Mom, we’ve made it! *wink*)

What: The 11th Annual Trailblazers Of Gospel Luncheon honoring Andrae Crouch & Donnie McClurkin

When: Friday, January 15th @ 11 a.m.

Hosts: Yolanda Adams & Byron Cage (If you saw my interview with Yolanda from Celebration Of Gospel, you know I’m looking for a tie!)

The Line Up!

Yolanda Adams (she’s performing too!)

Latice Crawford (Our very own Sunday Best 2nd Runner Up! *going in*)

Micah Stampley

Pastor Marvin Winans (*whoosh* factor just went to 10! He is still THEE Winans in my book but love them all.)

CeCe Winans (It’s a family affair!)

TaTa Vega (She’s one of the baddest vocalists around, but I felt never got her due in gospel, but I guess I was wrong! If you’re “of a certain age” you may not remember her name, but she was the voice of Shug Avery in “The Color Purple.”)

Mary Mary (they always tear it down!)

Dorinda Clark-Cole (to all my friends in Nashville, I’ll be needing extra sheets, towels, blankets, etc.)

I’m sure there are some surprises that I’m not being made privy to but in the words of the old church standby… “I Won’t Complain.” I’ll bring you whatever info I can as I find out.  So between this and the Bonnerfide Radio Launch Party, i’m ITCHING to get to Nashville!

See you there!
