BET’S reality gospel singing competition Sunday Best premiered it’s seventh season on Sunday with host Kirk Franklin. This year’s judges include gospel greats Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams, Kierra Sheard and Kim Burrell. With over 20,000 people auditioning they narrowed it down to twenty. And a young Cleveland man is happy to be in that number.
His voice and song struck the right chord with the judges. Now, Geoffrey Golden’s talent will be heard by millions as a top 20 finalist on Sunday Best. When I talked to him it’s obvious he’s passionate about singing gospel music and was determined to make it on the show.
“I went out for it last year, didn’t make it through but I said let me go back and try it again. It’s not going to cost me anything but time.So I did and here I am in the top 20.” says Golden.
As a member of Glenville Church of Christ Holiness USA in Cleveland, where his father is the pastor, Golden is used to singing in front of a crowd. When he got in front of the celebrity judges Golden says, “I was more nervous than I’ve ever been in my life. You know, singing in front of gospel greats.”
