The 36th annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards took place last weekend (July 10th) at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville and it did not disappoint.
The biggest night of gospel music featured performances by CeCe Winans, Kierra Sheard, Jonathan McReynolds, Tamela Mann and others. The Clark Sisters took home the James Cleveland Lifetime Achievement Award, and Tye Tribbett and Jekalyn Carr (youngest host in Stellar history!) Shared hosting responsibilities.
