Six Gospel artists are to have the chance to shine in a new reality program called The Gospel. The eight-part series will chronicle  contestants’ progress as they compete for a national management contract with TD Jakes’ Dexterity Sounds and the Marquis Boone Music Group.

The first of its kind for Gospel music, the winner of this Christian music competition will be announced with the opportunity to perform at the International Pastors & Leadership Conference in Tampa Bay on April 25, 2019.

The series is executive produced by TD Jakes and Marquis Boone and hosted by Darlene McCoy. It will serve as a platform for up-and-coming Gospel artists while inspiring viewers through their faith-filled musical performances.

Not only will the show discover new talent but they will also experience the hustle and drive necessary to rise in the music industry.
