Here's What You Missed at the Circle of Sisters Gospel Explosion

09/10/2019 12:00 AM EDT by WBLS Staff

Circle of Sisters is our annual 12-hour party that keeps the Tri-state area on their feet—from sun up to sun down. This year, the turn up was no different.

After a day of shopping, learning, dancing, and more, hundreds of loving and loyal WBLS listeners lined up to get inside Jacob Javits’ main hall to praise the night away with the headliners of this year’s Gospel Explosion: Yolanda Adams, Anthony Brown, Jonathan Nelson, and Bishop Hezekiah Walker. Pastor Donnie McClurkin joined WLIB personalities Liz Black and Neicy Tribbett as they hosted a very spirit-filled event.

Before artist Jonathan Nelson kicked things off, the chart-topper was backstage celebrating and laughing the night with your favorite artists.

This Gospel Explosion was one for the books. If you weren’t there, don’t worry because we’re doing it all again next year.
