One of the many highlights of Super Bowl XVLII, the NFL-sanctioned concert will feature some of the best gospel artists today, including Donnie McClurkin, Bishop Paul S. Morton, LeCrea, Pastor Marvin Winans, and Fantasia Barrino. Kirk Franklin will serve as host of the music portion, with “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd as MC for the event. Also, the audience will be treated to performances featuring the sixth annual NFL Players Choir. The 40-member ensemble includes current and former players and coaches. The choir allows NFL players who are Christians to share their love for Him in song. Past participants have included Donovan McNabb, Kurt Warner, Cris Carter, Darrell Green, Deion Sanders, John Elway, and Lovie Smith.
In addition, the founder of Super Bowl Gospel Fest, Melanie Few Harrison, announced Jan. 28 that Ray Lewis,17-season linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens, will be honored with its Lifetime of Inspirations award.
