NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, January 29, 2013 – The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration, an NFL sanctioned event currently in its 14th year, joins together NFL players, Grammy Award-winning artists, and special guests, on one stage to kick off Super Bowl Weekend. The show will take place on February 1, 2013 at 7:30 PM, at the University of New Orleans, Lake Front Arena.

TV Journalist and Editor-in-Chief of AlwaysAList.com, Jawn Murray joins Super Bowl Gospel Celebration as the official Social Media Ambassador. Murray will host a social media lounge for invited tastemakers, influencers and media professionals during the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration as part of Super Bowl XLVII weekend.

Murray is the latest addition to Super Bowl Gospel Celebration’s already all-star lineup of talent. Emmy Award-winning co-host of ABC’s “The View,” Sherri Shepherd and seven-time Grammy Award-winning gospel musician, Kirk Franklin were previously announced as the hosts of the show. Super Bowl Gospel Celebration will include performances by top gospel and contemporary Christian artists Donnie McClurkin, Marvin Winans, Bishop Paul S. Morton, and this year’s NFL “Players’ Choice” hip-hop Christian artist Lecrae.

The Washington, DC-based media personality will also host an interactive Twitter chat for Super Bowl Gospel on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at 9pm ET. The popular Pop Culture Expert—who appears weekly on CNN’s sister channel HLN discussing the hottest viral videos and online trends—will give away tickets and special prizes to online participants.

The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration was launched in Miami in 1999 during Super Bowl XXXIII weekend. In 2002, the event became the first, and remains the only concert sanctioned by the National Football League (NFL). The show has drawn crowds in the thousands and has demonstrated growth year-after-year, selling out venues in major Super Bowl host cities including Dallas, Tampa, Detroit, Jacksonville, Houston and Phoenix.
