In its 16th year, the only NFL sanctioned gospel music event kicked off just days before the biggest game in the world. It’s no secret that many players have faith, but to see them offer praise is a can’t miss experience.

 

Last night in Tempe, Arizona the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration brought faith to football! The event was attended by current and former football players, actors and gospel music fans from everywhere! The evening was hosts were former NFL Quarterback Rodney Peete and his wife Holly Robinson-Peete. The NFL choir opened the concert that included performances by Donnie McClurkin, Fred Hammond, Mali Music, DeWayne Woods, Dave Hollister, Anthony Hamilton, Natalie Grant, Israel & New Breed and headlined by soul legend turned gospel psalmist Gladys Knight.

Hats off to Melanie Few-Harrison and her amazing team celebrating 16 years of inspiration! This year’s Super Bowl Gospel Celebration did not disappoint! From the red carpet to the stage, the atmosphere was charged with expectation as attendees were ready to give God praise and praise is what they did! Praises poured in from all over the ASU Gammage auditorium on the Arizona State University campus, giving God genuine praise. One of the most anticipated moments of the evening recognized the winner of this year’s gospel dreams competition. Each year the winner performs his winning jingle chosen by American Family Insurance, a sponsor of the event.

The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration is the hottest ticket leading up to the Super Bowl. Each year, fans have the chance to see some of their favorite players in high praise. The up close atmosphere plays out more like a church service than a concert or football event, a super celebration indeed! This year, actors Tichina Arnold and Boris Kodjoe made red carpet appearances and Pastor Joel Osteen was on hand with his Sirius XM show doing a live remote, he got to catch up with Tony Dungy, the first African-American coach to win a Super Bowl.
