This is a sad story that broke out in the USA yesterday when BLACK ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION ( BET) announced the cancellation of one of its flagship events CELEBRATION OF GOSPEL. More than 2.6 million total viewers tuned in to BET’s annual special “Celebration of Gospel” when it premiered on April 6, making it the number one gospel/religious telecast on TV for 14 consecutive years.
A celebration of faith through music, this year’s special featured an all-star roster of performances including Tamela Mann, Kem,Yolanda Adams, Charlie Wilson, Lalah Hathaway, Zacardi Cortez, SWV, Candice Glover, Donnie McClurkin, Tasha Page Lockart, India.Arie, Jonathan McReynolds, Erica Campbell, Rance Allen Group, Tasha Cobbs, Tye Tribbett, Le’Andria Johnson and others.
Despite its stellar ratings and continued success, BET revealed during their upfront presentation to advertisers in New York that “Celebration of Gospel” would not return as one of its “Mega-Specials.” The network is bringing back the “BET Awards,” “Black Girls Rock,” “BET Hip Hop Awards,” and “BET Honors.
I didn’t believe this so i contacted a few friends of mine in the USA including JAMES FORTUNE and this is what they have to say. They mentioned that the COG has received a lot of bashing from Christians when it airs. ” the cancellation of the COG is not good but the Christian community is as part responsible because we watch it to bash it so how can we expect people to respect and support what we don’t support. Yes we watch but rip it apart so don’t be angry now that its gone”- ISAAC CARREE
Nicksolomonblog reached a rep at BET to enquire why the network has opted to cancel the top-rated special this morning but we had not received a response when this story was published. We looking forward to get a good response from BET soon why this great event has been cancelled.
