Congratulations Sheryl, DeVon, Rebecca and Wendy taking home awards during Oscar Week

By TBR – Exclusive — Hollywood, CA – When it comes to anything Gospel or anything Hollywood usually you wouldn’t think to put these two words in the same sentence. However thanks to visionary Tomeka B. Holyfield, that mindset is no more, with the creation of Gospel Goes to Hollywood.

Produced and created by Holyfield and now in its second run, the 2nd Annual Gospel Goes to Hollywood Awards Luncheon was Oscar ready with a palatial setting from the first step out of the Limo to the exquisite interior and lavishly landscaped courtyard exterior of the Taglyan Complex on Friday, February 22, 2013 from 11-2PM in Hollywood, CA.

Upon arrival, guests were greeted with a high-powered red carpet, servers offering glasses of Mimosas’, heavy tray pass h’orderves, and a flawless saxophonist playing everyone’s favorite song.  Within steps of everyone’s initial drop off point, a heavy hitting media row was only a few feet away anxiously waiting to interview or photograph the many honorees or special guests. Everyone from Sheryl Lee Ralph, Judge Mabalean, T.C. Carson, Terry & Rebecca Crews, Devon Franklin, Rockmond Dunbar, Erica Campbell, Jimmy Jean Louis, Florence LeRue, Adrian Anderson, and many others felt right at home.


This year’s honorees included Sony Pictures executive and Minister DeVon Franklin who gave a powerful acceptance speech, Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph, who received the  Faith and Endurance AwardMarla Gibbs with the Living Legend Award.. Also honored were Terry and Rebecca Crews with the “Equally Yoked” award. Truly their 25 years in marriage shows off itself. They were deserving of the award and last but not least Wendy Raquel-Robinson honored for her humanitarian work with charities and philanthropy.
