BET launches search for next Gospel star

LOS ANGELES, July 26  -- BET builds on its success with CELEBRATION OF GOSPEL, the #1 religious program in television history, and Bobby Jones Gospel with SUNDAY BEST, a national search for America's next great gospel singer.  Brought to you by one of the producers of the original American Idol, SUNDAY BEST will scour the country from storefront churches to
mega-churches looking for the best undiscovered gospel singers in America. The search begins in Los Angeles and moves on to Atlanta and Chicago -- hopefuls planning to audition should arrive early, as only the first 500 attendees are
guaranteed an audition!   SUNDAY BEST'S celebrity judges will narrow the field down to 20 finalists who will travel to Los Angeles to begin the competition. One anointed singer will be crowned BET's SUNDAY BEST and receive cash and
prizes for themselves and their church community.
