Finalists Announced for BET’s Sunday Best 

After making a triumphant return from its four-year hiatus earlier this summer,  BET’s  inspirational singing competition, “ Sunday Best ,” moves closer to crowning a new gospel superstar. Last night, the Grammy Award-winning songstress,  Fantasiaheated up the stage with a debut performance of “Looking For You,” from her forthcoming album Sketchbook.  She later joined the judge’s panel, kicking off an emotional night full of surprises which ended with  Joshua Copeland  and  Melvin Crispell, III  moving forward to the finale episode airing on August 25, 2019 at 8PM ET/PT. Fans are now encouraged to vote for their favorite contestant at: BET.com/VoteSundayBest .

Challenged with connecting with their inner selves this week, each contestant had to perform twice. For the first performance, the contestants chose a personal song and Kirk surprised them with a close family member for motivation.  Joshua selected Tasha Cobbs’ “I’m getting Ready,” while Melvin, performed Hezekiah Walker’s “Wonderful Is Your Name,” which was written by his late father Melvin Crispell II. 

For their second performance of the night, the competitors performed original songs created by a team of heavy hitters, including GRAMMY ® -nominated mega-hit wonder  Makeba Riddick-Woods  (Rihanna, Beyoncé, Tamar Braxton, Koryn Hawthorne) and six-time GRAMMY ® -winning powerhouse  Aaron Lindsey  (Israel Houghton, Marvin Sapp, Kenny Lattimore, Smokie Norful). What resulted was two awe-inspiring gospel singles “ Anything is Possible ” by Joshua Copeland and “ Not The End of Your Story ,” by Melvin Crispell III; both songs featured production by Lindsey and were co-produced by GRAMMY ® -winner Myron Butler.

Today, RCA Inspiration releases these two new songs, as the first installment of their partnership with BET to spotlight new music from the hit gospel competition series. Both songs are now available at digital music providers.  

The season 9 winner will receive a recording contract with RCA Inspiration, a cash prize of $50,000 and the title “Sunday Best.” BET will crown the season 9  Sunday Best  winner on Sunday, August 25th at 8:00PM ET/PT. The finale episode will feature special performances from GRAMMY Award®-winner  Tasha Cobbs Leonard , multiple Stellar Award-winner  VaShawn Mitchell.  Fans will also see soul stirring performances from judges  Jonathan McReynolds ,  Kelly Price , and   Erica Campbell  debuting her new single “Praying & Believing.”

PASTOR SHIRLEY CAESAR PERFORMS “YES, LORD YES”
