Sam’S Club is the proud presenter of the the 2006 Super Bowl Gospel Celebration (SBGC). SBGC will bring an evening of inspirational music, soul-stirring testimonies from NFL players and surprise guests to help kick off Super Bowl Weekend at the Masonic Temple on Friday, February 3 at 7:45 p.m. Sam’s Club is a first time title sponsor.
The seventh annual Gospel Celebration will feature award-winning, singing sensation Patti LaBelle who will share the stage with the hottest artists in gospel music including Detroit natives and gospel icons the Winans and Clark Sisters. In addition Grammy Award winning duo Mary Mary and New York’s own Hezekiah Walker and the Love Fellowship Choir will perform.
"At Sam’s Club, we are committed to giving back to the communities we serve,” said Mark Goodman, executive vice president Marketing, Membership and E-Commerce, Sam’s Club. “We appreciate the support of the NFL and warm hospitality of the city of Detroit.”
“Super Bowl Gospel Celebration is proud to have Sam’s Club as its presenting sponsor for the first time this year,” says Melanie Few, concert founder and manager, and owner of Results Inc., an Atlanta-based marketing and entertainment agency. “The show promises to once again be a true highlight of Super Bowl weekend with inspirational music and testimonies. The audience will be wowed with this soul-stirring, star-studded event.”
The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration evolved from NFL players suggesting an event during Super Bowl Weekend that highlighted Gospel music. The event has drawn thousands and has proven to be one of the most attended events during Super Bowl Weekend.
