Recap: Episode 7 of BET’s Sunday’s Best Season 3

Sunday's Best Season 3

Each singer got to sing their song of choice. Judging tonight was Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams, and filling in for Tina, was Kim Burrell. Coming from New Orleans!

.
Kim Burrell served as mentor. First up was Brian Smith. He sung “I won’t Complain”. I thought he had a good performance, I just wanted a bit more. I love the bow tie though. The judges liked him. Yolanda just want him to give a bit more before he get audience participation.

Orlando Wright, YES!! He sung, “Can’t Nobody Do Me Like Jesus”. I thought he did a good job taking control of the song. I felt like I was at church. He was believable.

Next up, they chose a wildcard from the 10 contestants that were not chosen last week. And the winner was…..

Martha Burries. I am glad about that!! She sung..I am sorry but she SUNG “Changed”. GREAT WildCard pick!!! Donnie, “The anointing has filled the room”. She was grea

Franklin Davis IV. He sung Kirk Franklin’s, “Savior, More than Life to Me”. Kim and Yolanda felt like he was concentrating a bit too much. But all felt that his voice is beautiful.

Dathan Thigpen, with his handsome self was up next. He sung Donnie McClurkin’s, “Speak to My Heart” . Donnie, said he loved the presentation of it. Yolanda said, “Your phenomenal”. They loved him and I did to. We will be seeing him next week..No question!

Tawanna Tarvin singing my favorite song, “Now behold the lamb”. She did a good job as well. It was a bit more screaming then I would like. I agreed with Donnie totally, who thought that she lost herself in the middle of the song.

Durward Davis was up next. He has a very strong voice!! He got me out of my seat! The judges couldn’t help but love him, I know I did.

Next up, LeeAndria Johnson. Her song choice was testimony of her life. She sung, “He was there all the time!”. She changed the song up and did an awesome job.

Three more to go..let’s go.,

David Wilford, sung “Great is Thy Faithfulness”. It was really laid back. Donnie liked the smoothness, both him and Yolanda thought it was given just right. Kim Burrell felt that he made her want to sing, and she did (just a little bit though).

Tiffany Carlin-Laird, sung “I Need Thee Every Hour”. I loved it!!!!! All the judges loved her!! Kim Burrell said, she made the competition look good!!

Elder Goldwire McLendon, said he just wait for the Lord to work through him!! Say What!! I LOVE HIM!! I LOVE HIM!! He sung “Yes Jesus Loves Me”. He is without a doubt my favorite, I know I know I shouldn’t say it!! But I have to be honest! Donnie sung, just like last time, it is like Elder McClendon’s anointing touches him!! What can I say….He brings out the best in the judges!! Yolanda said, “All I see is a man full of the Holy Ghost!!”. Donnie started preaching again!! I love it!!

Unfortunately, not all made it..those who we will see next week are..

Martha Burries, Tiffany Carlin-Laird, Dathan Thigpen, Duward Davis, Brian Smith, Elder Goldwire McClendon, LeeAndria Johnson, are staying.

See you all back here next week!!

Recap: Episode 3 of BET’s Sunday’s Best Season 3

Sunday's Best Season 3

The third episode of BET’s Sunday’s Best kicked off in the city of Brotherly Love, yes that’s right, PHILLYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! The regular judges Donnie McClurkin and Tina Campbell were there. Kim Burrell was back sitting in for Erica Campbell, who is very much pregnant with a son and was not in attendance.

First off, did you see the guy with the dummy?..Major no no!! There were a lot of good singers overall. Many people forgot the words, which makes me feel bad because if given the chance, they may actually be really good singers..but it is a competition and if you can’t remember the words at this stage then it doesn’t make sense for you to move on to the actual show where you sing a different song every week!!

Bethany Divine did a good job. She sung “Soon I Will Be Done With The Troubles of This World”. I think it will be nice to see her again. I was highly surprised by the voice that came out of the woman from Bulgaria (Maria). She was really good!! Another good singer was the brother Davon. He sang Mary Mary’s Yesterday. The judges loved him!! So no surprise Donnie McClurkin told him to put on his Sunday’s Best!!! Singer Orlando Wright did a good job but that is no surprise given he has been in stage plays and sung background for some leading gospel artists. Then there was my favorite performance of the night, 10 year old Kimani. He sung “Blessed Assurance” and I was left in awe. Too bad he is too young for the competition but I have no doubt we will be seeing a lot of him. Finally, did you see Elder McClendon!! No really, did you see him!! I almost fell out of the chair when he said he was 79 years old. He looks GREAT for his age. He was truly awesome and I look forward to seeing him as well…Well see you next week for another update!
