Shows such as "The Voice" and "American Idol" dominate TV when it comes to reality singing competitions, but if you haven't heard about "Sunday Best", strap on your Church shoes and get ready for season 10 of the gospel-filled singing competition. Artist Kirk Franklin returns after a four year hiatus as host and mentor, along with judges Erica Campbell, Jonathan Mcreynolds, and Kelly Price. The series returns with a bang and a live audience from Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the show as well as BET's 40th anniversary.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to keep the shows judges, contestants and crew safe - new and innovative technology, techniques and artist-generated content were used to complete production of episodes four through eight of season 10 - allowing the audience to join in on weekly praise & worship during the time when America needs it most.
The highly anticipated, season 10 will feature exclusive performances from today’s chart-topping artists including Yolanda Adams, Marvin Sapp, Mali Music, season 9’s winner, Melvin Crispell, III with additional performers set to be announced in the forthcoming weeks.
Jesse Collins, CEO of Jesse Collins Entertainment (BET Awards, The New Edition Story), and Dionne Harmon (The Bobby Brown Story, Hip Hop Squares) serve as the executive producers of season ten.
Executive producer and showrunner Jeannae Rouzan-Clay of Dear Mama and Black Girls Rock! is essential to the crew as well as Torrence Glenn (Celebration Of Gospel, Trumpet Awards), the co-executive producer. Season 10 auditions were previously held earlier this year in Atlanta, GA at The House of Hope. The season 10 winner will receive a recording contract with RCA Inspiration, a cash prize of $50,000 and the title “Sunday Best.”
