With His Latest Stop at the Stellar Awards
In Between Television Tapings
TBR–Nashville, TN — Multiple Award winning Ambassador Dr. Bobby Jones is once again creating a new national platform for independent artists who will also share the stage with top charting national artists. Based out of Music City USA, Dr. Jones has revamped his television show Bobby Jones Presents that now airs on The Dish Satellite Channel 268, DirecTV Channel 380, Comcast Channel 84, AT & T, Charter and Time Warner.
While he has always been known for offering prime exposure to some of Gospel music’s top acts like Kirk Franklin, MaryMary, Yolanda Adams and Vickie Winans he has also been there to offer prime television spots for some of Gospel’s legends as well, including; Albertina Walker, Dorothy Norwood, The Caravans and many others.
However it seems as though the guards of generosity are slowly changing as many in leadership positions are now offering the undisputed icon the same love, accolades, acknowledgement, and inclusion he has been offering to others for years.
Most recently Dr. Jones received an outpouring of love during the recent Stellar Awards Weekend 2018 in Las Vegas. During one of the kick off events, Dr. Jones received a Lifetime Achievement Award, from Patti Pennington’s Domestic Violence Gala. The award was presented by Lydia Wright and Everett Drake while being serenaded by the ever so fabulous Las Vegas Community Choir.
On the following night, Dr. Jones was invited to salute the Stellar Awards nominees during the Pre-Show by spotlighting the value of the Stellar Awards to the nominees and special guest performers for the Awards showcase. His remarks were received with thunderous applause.
The spotlight then shined a bit brighter on the living legend during the opening of the 33rd Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards show. Dr. Jones and Gospel icon Kirk Franklin performed an opening skit, which was written and developed by Franklin. “Kirk is such a smart young man. Including me in that opening segment for the world to see and the dialogue we exchanged was all of his idea. It was simply fabulous and masterfully executed,” says Dr. Jones.
Additionally Dr. Jones role with the Stellar Awards has evolved even on a larger scale. For several years now, the Stellar Gospel Music Awards has been awarding the prestigious Ambassador Dr. Bobby Jones Legends Award to gospel music personalities that have contributed above and beyond the ordinary over a long period of time. Some of the recipients of the award include Dorothy Norwood and Pastor Maceo Woods just to name a few. This year’s recipient was the legendary Milton Bigham, singer, songwriter, producer and agent for Malaco Records, Jackson, Mississippi. The award was presented during Stellar Awards Gospel show on Saturday, March 24, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Orleans Arena.
However while the days ran into nights and some of the night activities ran into days with a non-stop weekend filled with walking several red carpets, signing autographs, taking pictures and attending invitation only events, Dr. Jones, 79, says, “It was worth it all. A wonderful experience and I would do it all over again”.
