This was the first time the Stellar Awards was covered at the Municipal Auditorium. It was definitely a memorable night as Sherry Sheperd of ABC’s “The View” and comedian Rickey Smiley host of his own syndicated radio show in Atlanta, Georgia hosted the award show which was broadcast live on UP Network.

There were plenty of great performances from: Isaac Carree & P.S.A.L.M.S, Anthony Brown & Group Therapy, Donald Lawrence & Company, Ricky Dillard, Shirley Caesar, Tasha Cobbs and Hezekiah Walker. In addition there was special performances with the Canton Spirituals, The Gospel Legends and The Wardlaw brothers, Erica Campbell, Jekalyn Carr, Latice Crawford and Lexi. And a special male collabo with Vashawn Mitchell, Zacardi Cortez, Jonathan McReynolds, and Jonathan Nelson.

Of course everyone wanted to know who the big winners would be.

The night clearly belonged to Tamela Mann as she won 7 much deserved Stellar Awards! She won in the following categories: “CD of the Year for Best Days,” “Artist of the Year,” “Song of the Year,” “Albertina Walker female vocalist of the year,” “Traditional Female of the Year,” “Urban/Inspirational Single or Performance of the Year” and “Praise and Worship CD of the Year.”

Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee was honored with the Thomas A. Dorsey LIfetime Achievement Award, while Hezekiah Walker walked away with the James Cleveland LIfetime Achievement Award and Rev. Maceo Woods was honored with the Bobby Jones with the Chevrolet Ambassador Bobby Jones Award from the man himself.

Another great highlight of the evening is when the Stellars honored the late Nelson Mandela who died in December at age 95. Tony winning Jennifer Holliday set the tone with the tribute singing, “Make Them Hear You” from Ragtime.
