Sunday Best Winner Chosen!



Y'Anna Crawley
If you were like me you sat glued to the TV waiting with baited breath to see who America picked for the winner of Sunday's Best on BET! Well the votes are in! and Y'Anna Crawley was named BET's SUNDAY BEST! The 32-year-old Washington, DC resident won America's hearts over Jessica Reedy, 20, in the gospel singing competition during the season finale. Over a 10-week season, Crawley's bubbly personality and bravado voice captured the hearts of viewers, bringing in the larger percentage of the more than one million total votes. Along with the title of SUNDAY BEST, Crawley brings home a national recording contract and a 2009 Lincoln MKS.

The one-hour season finale concluded with Y'Anna performing "The Promise," a song written by Lou "Buster" Brown, Scott "Shavoni" Parker and Ryan Sims. "The Promise" will be the first single on Y'Anna's debut project. "I feel like I have been preparing for this moment my entire life," says Crawley in a recent press release. "Through the ups and downs and highs and lows, God has truly been faithful and I owe it all to Him."

In 2000, Crawley a single mother of two, decided to quit a bank job to pursue her life long dream of becoming a professional singer. Singing has always been her passion, even at the early age of seven when she first began to sing at church. From the beginning of the competition, Crawley immediately grabbed the attention of the judges and viewers at home with her powerhouse voice.

It was a great competition this year full of talented people from all over the country including a few here in Atlanta. I was of course pulling for my homie Zebulan Ellis, whom I caught at the auditions here in ATL and I must tell you there were some very good people singing for the judges here in Atlanta...glad I was not a judge.

This year there seem to be an Eastern connection as all the top three finalist-Crawley, Jessica Reedy and Latice Crawford were from east coast towns. Each lady had great power packed vocals including the tiny Crawford (one of the judges told her "We don't know how that big voice comes out of that little bitty body of yours"...my thoughts exactly) however in the end it was the soulful and full-bodied sound of Crawley that won the hearts of everyday American people and the judges. I can't wait to see how this album turns out and wish her all the best!
