Tamela Mann went home a winner after the 2017 Stellar Awards and her husband David Mann was right by her side. Find out which awards she nabbed, plus flicks of Adrienne and Israel Houghton, Kirk and Tammy Collins Franklin and more….
It's red carpet time for the Saints (& Aints)!
Major congrats to Tamela Mann!
The gospel singer/ actress picked up two awards the 32nd Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards last night in Las Vegas at The Orleans Arena as all of the gospel community came out to celebrate all of the biggest stars in the industry.
Mrs. Mann scooped up the Artist of the Year for her album One Way and she won the Albertina Walker Female Vocalist of the Year. She also nabbed several other awards, including Traditional Female Vocalist of the Year, Traditional CD of the Year, and Urban/Inspirational Single or Performance of the Year. Nice!
Tamela’s husband David Mann and their children came out to celebrate her big night.
On the carpet, the couples brought the fab:
“The Real” co-host Adrienne Bailon Houghton hit the carpet on her gospel singing husband Israel Houghton’s arm in a sexy black lace dress. While we don't see anything wrong with her ensemble, let's hope the church folks don't start going in.
Gospel singer Kirk Franklin and his wife Tammy were all about the PDA, getting kissy on the carpet.
Both Kirk and Tamela hit the stage for the gospel turn up.
"Mary Mary" singer Erica Campbell wowed on the carpet before getting to her co-hosting duties alongside singer Anthony Brown (below).
“Mary Mary” singer Tina Campbell hit the carpet with her husband Teddy Campbell during the pre-show event.
Goo Goo Atkins, who is Erica and Tina's sister and stylist, tastefully showed off her curves in a black lace dress.
"Insecure" star Yvonne Orji looked amazing while on the carpet before hitting the stage to present.
Singer Cassandra Robertson and artist/producer Fozworth Bentley backstage.
Gospel musician Travis Greene and his wife Jacqueline Gyamfi Greene were picture perfect as they posed it up on the red carpet. Travis nabbed the Song of the Year Award for his track “Made A Way" and Male Vocalist of the Year.
“The Carmichael Show” actress Loretta Devine and gospel singer-songwriter MAJOR were all smiles on the carpet when they ran into each other.
“Greenleaf” star Deborah Joy Winans, a member of the royal musical Winans family, looked nice in a LBD. By the way, the season just started back on OWN and it's already EVERYTHING.
Former BET host Bobby Jones came out for the gospel festivities.
"No Weapon" singer Fred Hammond (who was tapped to perform) and singer B.Slade, formerly known as Tonéx, were in the mix. Hmph.
Then, it was time for some CHURCH!
The gospel acts took over the stage, including performances from Pastor Shirley Caesar and Donnie McClurkin.
And Yvonne looked like she was having fun presenting.
The 32nd Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards will air on TV One, Sunday, April 9th (Palm Sunday) at 6pm EST.
