This weekend, Atlanta’s Award-winning State Farm Arena hosted the biggest gospel concert of the year: Super Friends Praise Fest. The show’s lineup included Yolanda Adams, Erica Campbell, Tye Tribbett, Marvin Sapp, Keke Wyatt, Jekalyn Carr, Fred Hammond, Travis Greene, Keyondra Lockett, Le’Andria Johnson and Bishop Cortez Vaughn. The event was hosted by comedians Lexi Allen and Anna C. Douglas, with a special presentation from Pastor Jamal Bryant and surprise appearance from B2K founding member, Raz B. Thousands flocked to the arena from all over the world to enjoy a night of high praise and the celebration of gospel music.
The night’s sponsors included G.L.A.M. Body Scrubs, TV One’s “Never Would’ve Made It: The Marvin Sapp Story”, Church Funny and KB Christian Apparel. Fans had plenty to say about the concert, calling it “the best show all year” and some describing it as “an epic night of gospel music.” During the show, singer Erica Campbell was presented with a Billboard plaque for her song, “Positive” which recently hit number one on the Billboard and Mediabase charts. The plaque was presented to her by her husband and producer Warren Campbell. The award marked Campbell’s first number one song as a solo artist.
Backstage, Pastor Jamal Bryant was presented with a special Hawks jersey with his name embroidered on the back.
In response to the evening, Super Friends Praise Fest’s executive team added, “We would like to thank State Farm Arena, our production team, each artist, hosts and their teams for putting together an incredible show. Thank you to all of the guests that came out to support and create an electrifying night! We can’t wait to take this to other cities!”
