EMF 2011: Celebrating CeCe Winans and Marvin Sapp

CeCe Winans and Marvin Sapp were honored at this year's ESSENCE Music Festival. See who came to rejoice and pay their respects.

For anybody who didn't make it to church on Sunday during the ESSENCE Music Festival, the church came to the Ernest Morial Convention Center!

That’s where ESSENCE honored gospel greats CeCe Winans and Marvin Sapp during an All-Star Gospel Tribute at the ESSENCE Empowerment Stage. The day was full of spirited performances from some of gospel music's most celebrated stars.

Kelly Price and Shirley Murdock sang a soul-stirring set, while Kierra Sheard and Vanessa Bell Armstrong got the crowds on their feet as the tribute kicked into high gear. Fred Hammond, Deitrick Haddon and Trin-i-tee 5:7 were also in the house.

If you missed the chance to get your praise on, take a look at all the action here!
