Guest Blogger: BJ Daniels Recaps Walter Hawkins Tribute Concert

Published by Torrence Glenn on Wednesday, July 21, 2010 at 1:06 pm.

Hey folks, last night the  2 day memorial festivities  for Bishop Walter Hawkins began with the memorial concert “The Man, The Music, The Ministry: A Musical Salute to Bishop Walter Hawkins” . I wanted to make it to Oakland  to attend but prior commitments and logistics just didn’t allow it, but thankfully our good friend of the blog BJ Daniels was able to attend and was willing to recap the night for us for those who didn’t make it. As I’m sure most of you know, I’m pretty active on the social media platform “Twitter” and it’s proven to be a rather remarkable way to bring people together and share information. Although most of us were unable to be at last night’s concert, you were able to get some updates of what was going on from different people on twitter. For example, the program photo tot he right was captured and posted by gospel artist DeWayne Woods. And our guest blogger today, BJ Daniels was able to offer his recap to me via twitter when he realized that I wasn’t there. How dope is that!

BJ Daniels is an administrator at Greater Mt. Calvary Holy Church, Washington, DC, graphic designer, former gospel radio announcer and gospel enthusiast. He also has his own blog, so you should check it out here!

Sup folks. Me again!

As you all know, auditions for Sunday Best 3 were a little different this year.  For the first time ever, we had the BET.com Digital VIP Suite sponsored by Ford in every U.S. audition city where a select group of 150 contestants were able to audition.  In the VIP Suite, my guest judges and I were able to handpick who would go to the final round of judging. My guest judges for Detroit were Sunday Best 2 finalists Jessica Reedy, Camille Betton and R&B/Soul STAR Ledisi. Check out the clip below to see what went down in the VIP Room in Detroit! Yeah I know, the Detroit auditions already aired…. Well, there were some back-end issues that kept me from getting the video to you earlier but it’s here now so don’t trip!  :-) This Sunday, check back for Philly’s Digital VIP Suite Recap. Watch now!

torrence's tips

Sup folks.  It’s been a busy couple of weeks as we gear up for the premiere of Sunday Best 3!

The BET.com Digital VIP Room presented by the folks at Ford was a beast.  We went to Detroit, New Orleans and Philadelphia looking for the gospel’s next star.  And let me just say, it was something…. else.  There were some GREAT singers, some good singers and some “special” singers.  But we had a great time!
