Football players were the reason for the first Super Bowl Gospel Celebration held in 1999, at Super Bowl XXXIII in Miami. Since 2008 an NFL Players' Choir has performed during the concert.

Glover sang two with LaBelle, “If Only You Knew” and “Somebody Loves You Baby (You Know Who It Is).” Patti LaBelle concluded her set with “When You’ve Been Blessed.”

Donnie McClurkin debuted his new single, “We Are Victorious” for the audience. The song is from his upcoming album, “Duets,” which is scheduled for release in late March.

The night was enjoyed by all and was a nice prelude for Sunday's Super Bowl.
