Over the weekend, I went to one of several tapings of 106 & Gospel (the new name of our favorite new show, 106 & Park Presents: Generation Gospel). Actually, they’ve been calling it 106 & Gospel for a minute now, but it’s all official now, with a new logo and everything. But BET has heard our cries and made some changes.
They probably have a few shows left from their last production run, so we’ll be seeing the “older” stuff for a few more weeks, but stay tuned cuz I think BET’s heading in the right direction.
First, and most important to me: THAT YOUTH CHOIR IS OUT. LOL
Deep down inside, I kinda believe that someone saw me blasting it and decided it had to be over. If you watched the show yesterday, you saw that Juda Camp is the new house choir. Remember them? They were the choir in the choir battle that sang to a track and did a lot of dancing. Well, they won and they’re singing sho’ nuff now… and they’ve got a new song that brings us in and out of commercials. It’s better, though, for real. WORLDS better.
Jor’el and Angel are still doing their thing. I’ve always thought, and still believe, that he was more comfortable in this role than she is, but she’s warmed up a lot.
All in all, I think BET is really trying to listen to everyone’s feedback and make the show better. I think you’ll be pleased with the result. Upcoming performances include Canton Jones, Crystal Aikin, Damita Haddon, James Fortune & FIYA, Tye Tribbett and more. Make sure you stay tuned!
