Last year, Bishop T.D. Jakes and Marquis Boone launched a platform for up-and-coming gospel artists while inspiring viewers through their faith-filled musical performances. “The Gospel” chronicled 10 days with eight episodes as contestants competed for a national management contract with Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Dexterity Sounds and Marquis Boone Music Group.
Contestants were discovered via recordings submitted on social media and through the Bishop’s Village platform. Mentors, including Micah Stampley, Jekalyn Carr, Q Parker, Devyne Stephens and more helped mold them into polished performers. Each week, viewers subscribed to Bishop’s Village had the chance to vote and select the winner of the artists’ weekly challenge. At the end, Bishop T.D. Jakes and Marquis Boone selected Yolanda DeBerry (stage name “Yoli”) as the winner of the competition gospel show.
But this year, will the competition be focused on pastors? I’m just asking because of Bishop’s teaser. Check it out below and let me know what you think.
