    Besides the SAG Awards last night, the Stellar Awards is the Oscars of “Urban” Gospel Music. Tamela Mann’s talents move beyond just music – she is a wonderful actress on Tyler Perry’s The Browns TV show and Tyler Perry film franchise. Her work may not win an Oscar but it is just valuable as ANY Supporting Actress award.
