Grambling State University to Hold Gospel Concert with Le’Andria Johnson, Amber Bullock, Kierra Sheard, and Candace Bryant at 7 PM Tonight

Grambling State University will have four gospel stars in concert starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at T.H. Harris Auditorium. Admission is free and doors open at 6 p.m.

Presented by the university’s Lyceum Committee and the Office of Student Activities, this will be the first time GSU has had four gospel recording artists performing on the same stage on campus. Two of the artists were crowned “Sunday Best” on BET, one is part of a legendary gospel family and the fourth has been singing since she was 2 years old.

“We invite all of northern Louisiana to come out and have a little church with Grambling State University,” GSU President Frank G. Pogue said. “We know Wednesdays are a normal, midweek night for a lot of church Bible studies, and we know that regular church-goers will get a lot of religion and a lot about the Word if they join us Wednesday night. I don’t think many pastors would mind.”

Le’Andria Johnson and Amber Bullock were crowned winners of BET’s reality show “Sunday Best,” a gospel singing competition series hosted by gospel recording artist and producer Kirk Franklin. On the show, the judges set out to find the best, undiscovered gospel talent around the world.

Johnson of Palatka, Fla. was crowned the Season 3 winner in June 2010, and Bullock of St. Louis was crowned in Season 4 in September 2011. Each received a national recording contract, a new car and an undisclosed cash prize benefiting his or her community as well as the title of ‘Sunday Best.’

Both signed with the Music World Gospel label with Matthew Knowles, father of superstar Beyoncé Knowles.

Kierra Sheard from Detroit is another big name in the music industry. Sheard is the daughter of gospel singer Karen Clark Sheard and the granddaughter of gospel choral director Mattie Moss Clark.
