Bringing faith, football and gospel music together, the 15th Annual NFL Sanctioned Super Bowl Gospel Celebration will be in New York City, kicking-off Super Bowl XLVIII weekend on Friday, January 31, 2014 at Theater at Madison Square Garden. Sponsored by American Family Insurance, this year’s concert will align GRAMMY Award-winning artists, church and faith leaders and special guests all on one stage to give audiences a show to remember.

Announced as the headliner of this milestone concert taking the stage, will be legendary entertainer and GRAMMY award-winner Patti LaBelle.  Also joining the list of top performers at this year’s show include GRAMMY Award-winning gospel sensation Mary Mary, Christian contemporary singer Natalie Grant and actress & singer Tamela Mann. Previously announced performers include GRAMMY Award-winning Gospel artist and Pastor of Perfecting Faith Church in New York, Donnie McClurkin, and the NFL Player’s Choir, which is exclusively composed of current and former players.

Over the course of fifteen years, Super Bowl Gospel Celebration has brought together amazing performances and special guests including Anita Baker, Gladys Knight, Yolanda Adams, Kelly Price, The Clark Sisters, and many more. Most recently, the 2013 event was hosted by Emmy Award-winning co-host of ABC’s “The View,” Sherri Shepherd, and seven-time GRAMMY Award-winning gospel artist Kirk Franklin. Headlined by GRAMMY Award-winning, platinum-selling artist and American Idol winner Fantasia, the night was full of memorable moments including Great Performances by Donnie McClurkin, Marvin Winans, Bishop Paul S. Morton, and the NFL “Players’ Choice” hip-hop Christian artist Lecrae.
