VSU hosts annual Sunday’s Best on November 2

Written By: Tierra Francois

VSU’s Sunday’s Best initially started in Fall 2011 as a way for the choir to offer an event for homecoming. Eventually the event became annual and very popular.

Similar to BET’s Sunday Best, these auditions give students the opportunity to express themselves in song. The auditions this year for Sunday’s Best were held on Oct. 15 and Oct. 16.

Although the competition consists mostly of singing, any act is welcomed. The competition revolves around Christian or gospel music. The event is seen as more of a talent competition or showcase for the VSU community. Just like the choir, the competition is open to any VSU students, faculty or staff.

The judges from the competition come from the community for the actual event. Eric Bentley, president and director of the event, says, “Not only do I see to it that things are accomplished, but I also physically take on the task of ensuring that things are done efficiently.”

Bentley knows that being president and director is a handful and he is willing to take time to make sure he has a part in everything. Bentley also has a reliable executive board and music team that help get things done.

“My executive board and music team definitely makes the workload much easier. They are a hardworking group of people that you can rely on,” Bentley says.

Sunday’s Best is a great event for VSU and brings something different for students to engage in. Sunday’s Best is the perfect competition to be a part of to express your religion through song, dance, poetry or whichever medium you prefer.

Eric Bentley is welcoming anyone from VSU to join in on the fun.  This year’s event will be held Nov. 2 in the Whitehead Auditorium at 6:30pm.
