It was an elegant setting as GSF producer United Television and Presenting Sponsor Pantene Pro-V offered an eloquent spread for its guests at the beautiful Marriott Marquis Hotel (Downtown Atlanta). The event commenced around 11:00 PM on Friday Night and continued until 3:00 AM as all of the 12 new artist showcase performers rocked the house. Stand out performers included Catch 2, The Choir Boyz, Wanda Trent-Phillips, Bridgette (ABLIFE Recording Artist /Special Guest), Serenity (Rochester, NY) Harold & company (Atlanta) as each artist unique in their own right delivered some very memorable and highly anointed performances. Gospel Superfest USA created its New Talent showcase as an additional component to Gospel Superfest weekend to offer additional opportunities for up and coming artists. "This year, the performers raised the bar as there is some but very little difference these days in the established veterans and many of the new comers. These acts were outstanding", states Dr. Bobby Cartwright, Jr. Gospel Superfest Executive Producer.
