The Paradise Theater in the Bronx is so gorgeous, it always feels ripe with transcendent moments, but Gospel Celebration may just elevate the Greco-Roman room even higher. Headliner Marvin Sapp is synonymous with contemporary gospel soul, and has two BET awards in three years to prove it, and opener Regina Bell boasts ethereal breadth you heard (hopefully not just) in "A Whole New World," her Aladdin soundtrack Grammy-winner with Peabo Bryson. But we're most excited for the decade-in-the-making of siblings BeBe & CeCe Winans, one of the most successful and enriched gospel duos of all time, whose cover of the Staples Singers' "I'll Take You There" will make a believer out of anyoneexactly what you're exalting will be between you and yours, but their sublime, intertwined gifts are indisputable.
