[Watch] Divas Feel The Holy Spirit @ BET 2013 Celebration of Gospel

We all love a little bit of Gospel music, irrespective of whether saint or sinner, Christian or heathen. Holding their Celebration of the genre, BET gathered some of the best and brightest in the industry to praise and rejoice live on camera! Hallelujah!!

Divas performing included Anita Baker, Yolanda Adams, Tamela Mann,Shirley Caesar and the Clark Sisters. But the stand out performance came from a pregnant Tamar Braxton, who not only earned a standing ovation for her rendition of Be Grateful but had many at home proclaiming "I didn't know she could sing like that".

Note: I can't get the videos to not auto-play, so be prepared for a wave of Gospel goodness to hit as soon as they come alive. It is not God trying to send you a message via this blog (!)

Some fun facts about the Christmas carol, courtesy of Wikipedia of course, before we begin. O Holy Night was written by French Poet Placide Cappeau and was composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847! The words to the carol have been changed somewhat since then, and for anyone wanting to sing along as they listen, they are as follows;

Review : Aretha Franklin 2011 Grammy tribute- Christina Aguilera the superstar vocalist is REBORN

Aretha Franklin tribute singers: Florence Welch, Jennifer Hudson,
Christina Aguilera, Martina McBride and Yolanda Adams
