Motown Gospel/Capitol CMG recording artist Evvie McKinney will join the star-studded lineup of Gospel performers for The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and BET’s “A Day of Healing“. The special will air this Sunday, October 11th at 10a/9c on BET and feature performances from Evvie, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, The Clark Sisters, Tye Tribbett and a special word from Bishop T.D. Jakes. The day filled with inspiration will be hosted by Grammy award-winning Gospel legend, Kirk Franklin. 

The celebration will close out the CBC’s first virtual Annual Legislative Conference, held August 31 – October 2, and continue the work they do to celebrate Black culture and those leading change for the Black community.

“It is such a blessing to be a part of “A Day of Healing”, says McKinney. “There are so many legendary artists who are performing and I’m just ecstatic to be in the mix. I have waited my entire life to be on the BET network, and I’m so grateful to be sharing my healing music with the world!”

Evvie’s performance comes after a highly successful summer of new music releases, which include her smash hit “Bring the Whole Hood“, co-written with Meghan Trainor. On Sunday, viewers will experience the passion and soul Evvie brings to the stage with a performance of her uplifting track, “Just Like God“, which blends together genres of soul, rock, R&B and gospel to create a unique sound that beautifully showcases Evvie’s musicality.

I’m thrilled that the world will get to see Evvie on such a major platform this weekend,” shares EJ Gaines, Co-Executive Director, Motown Gospel. “She’s a young woman, but she’s got a seasoned soul. I know her music will resonate with listeners of all ages.”

Evvie McKinney rose to prominence as the winner of the inaugural season of the TV singing competition The Four: Battle for Stardom on FOX. The soulful singer wowed judges Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, DJ Khaled, and Meghan Trainor with her powerful voice and fearless stage presentation, packing a punch as she effortlessly covered iconic soul songs, like Aretha Franklin’s “I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You” and Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.”
