New York, NY (MusiqQueen.com) Back by popular demand, SUNDAY BEST returns for its second season on Sunday, March 8 at 9:00 p.m.* Host Kirk Franklin and judges Erica and Tina Campbell of Mary Mary and BeBe Winans are all back together to find America’s next great gospel singer. Making stops in Atlanta, Chicago, and our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., SUNDAY BEST kicks off the season premiere with a special episode dedicated to the inspiring, hilarious and even sometimes challenging audition process.
“The level of talent for the second season is going to show the world what we’ve been saying since the beginning of the series…only on SUNDAY BEST will you find true, honest talent that hasn’t been compromised,” said returning host Franklin.
Season two of SUNDAY BEST will tape in its new home of Atlanta at Turner Studios. Each week during the hour-long competition, viewers will be treated to musical performances from the remaining SUNDAY BEST hopefuls along with candid feedback from the all-star team of judges and surprise visits from an array of celebrity guests.
“We’re so excited about this season! The level of talent we saw was so amazing; which made it really hard to say no to some folks,” said Erica and Tina Campbell of Mary Mary. “The viewing audience will be blessed, entertained and uplifted for sure!”
SUNDAY BEST is executive produced by D’Angela Proctor Steed and Nia T. Hill of Strange Fruit Films, Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, BeBe Winans as well as Brian Gadinsky and Arnold M. Preston of The G Group, and co-executive produced by Marilyn Gill.
“SUNDAY BEST stands out in the world of talent competition shows because it is the only one where the judges critique the contestants one day and compete against them on the gospel music charts the next,” said Steed.
“This season is a true testimony of hard work, dedication and pure raw talent,” adds Hill.
