The rain didn’t stop the 3 year anniversary celebration of Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell. With an audience full of fans, gospel singers with angelic voices and several pastors took us to church their was no stopping this event.
Jason McGee moved the crowd to their feet with the help of Brooklyn’s own Christian Cultural Center choir, and DJ Toney Tone didn’t stop playing gospel hits in between each set.
As the evening went on Erica Campbell was surprised by Pastor Donnie McClurkin as well as Pastor John Gray. Both weren’t their to preach, but the crowd rooted them to do more than just a general “hello” and “congratulations.”
McClurkin even shared a magical moment with Campbell as they sang one of her hit songs.
Moreover, you know when Anthony Brown touched the stage everyone had to put their dancing shoes on. Him as well as his background singers milly rocked and then gave us those #BlessingsonBlessings steps that some would compare to a gospel electric slide.
Lena Byrd, one of the newest artists on My Block, gave an unforgettable performance, but as she walked off Campbell made her get back on to share a special testimony. Campbell said, “Now you know you she wasn’t done.”
Smiles were on everyones faces as Le’Andria Johnson was announced to go on next. Johnson sang her hit “Jesus” and their were several moments where she gave everyone chills.
For the last several years she struggled with substance abuse and went to jail, and during the middle of the song Johnson shared her testimony about how God brought her out and made a way. As she got help to take her shoes off, Johnson showed the crowd her ankle monitor and told everyone that it’s coming off next month.
Nevertheless as the show continued Campbell gave fans a special performance of her new single and it truly was a beautiful moment.
The rain trickled down a bit as Jonathan McReynolds got the crowd to sing “Cycles” with him. He belted out those “eeEee’s” and even shared how it can be utilized in different situations.
BeBe Winans was honored and given the key to Brooklyn as well as presented a special montage of his musical journey.
Even though the rain came down, fans stuck around with their umbrellas up and still continued to give God the glory. Thank you Lord for giving us 3 years and we look forward to many more!
