The 36th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards went down at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville this past weekend (July 10) and it did not disappoint.
Gospel music’s biggest night boasted performances by CeCe Winans, Kierra Sheard, Jonathan McReynolds, Tamela Mann, and more. The Clark Sisters took home the James Cleveland Lifetime Achievement Award and Tye Tribbett and Jekalyn Carr (youngest host in Stellar history!) shared hosting duties.
