The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration 2012 will be bigger and better than ever on Friday, Feb. 3rd! This year’s celebration will include singers like CeCe Winans, Donnie McClurkin, Wess Morgan, Hezekiah Walker, and Fantasia Barrino.
The NFL choir has always been the highlight of the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration which features current and former players! The NFL Choir made its debut at the 2008 show with more than 40 members, under the direction of McClurkin; whom will be joined this year by Myron Butler.
The Choir was formed by several Christian NFL players who wanted to share their faith through their musical talents in song and instrument. The group offers fans an opportunity to see a very personal side of the players, as they make a joyful noise. The NFL Players Choir will celebrate its anniversary singing a gospel favorite with Fantasia.
To-date, NFL players scheduled to participate in this year’s show include Donald Driver (Green Bay), Dwight Freeney (Colts), Antwaan Randle El (free agent/Steelers), Benjamin Watson (Browns), Tim Brown (retired Raiders), Ray Buchanan (retired Colts/Falcons), Dextor Clinkscale (retired Dallas), Darrell Green (retired Redskins) and many more.
The Gospel Celebration not only serves as a christening for the big event, but it also raises money for local and charities and gives away over 5,000 tickets.
