Howard University Alumnae Taraji P Henson to Host BET’s Celebration of Gospel Again

Howard alumnae Taraji P. Henson will be hosting BET’s Celebration of Gospel airing tomorrow on the network at 8 p.m. and “features spirited performances by some of today’s hottest and most talented artists from the worlds of gospel and R&B,” reports

For the second consecutive year Henson has had hosting duties for the show.

On her views on gospel, the black college grad said she believes that the show is important because “we have to celebrate God” and give back.

“If you’re blessed, you need to go out into the world and be a blessing,” Henson continued. “We’re all blessed, and this is our gift back to the world for being blessed.”

“A highlight of the celebration will be a tribute to gospel great Andrae Crouch, who died on January 8, 2015,” reports “Performers include Chaka Khan, Kirk Franklin, Gladys Knight, Kirk Franklin, Pastor Shirley Caesar, Tamela Mann, Yazz (Bryshere Gray), Tye Tribbett and many more.”
