In the world of celebrities and shining stars, few events capture the essence of unity, faith, and musical excellence quite like the Super Bowl Soulful Celebration (formerly known as the SuperBowl Gospel Celebration). As we gear up for this remarkable evening, two extraordinary women are making waves, Dr. Marcea Burnette Whitaker and Sharrarne Morton. These powerful women, both members of the prestigious Black Door Society, had the opportunity to sit down and interview with the amazing talent and organizers ahead of this inspirational event set to air on its new home on CBS.
Dr. Marcea Whitaker, a renowned physician, life coach, and international keynote speaker, is a name synonymous with transformation. As the CEO of In Full Bloom Health and Life Coaching, a global company dedicated to helping professional women break free from their personal prisons of life, Dr. Marcea empowers women to discover their true selves, set their goals, and achieve their destinies.
Her accolades speak volumes, including being named International Woman of the Year and founding the Girl Boss Life Academy, a platform designed to equip women with the tools to redefine, refocus, and redirect their mindset towards greatness. Featured in Forbes and recognized on major media platforms like ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, and USA Today, Dr. Marcea is a beacon of hope for women worldwide. She also hosts the “Up Sis Up!” Women’s Empowerment Radio Show on the Mega Source Entertainment Network, spreading positivity and inspiration every Tuesday at 8 PM EST.
Sharrarne Morton, the dynamic CEO of Morton Media and the host of “Skin Deep” on SiriusXM, is a force to be reckoned with in the media industry. Her show, which airs on Fridays at 5:30 PM, Saturdays at 7:30 PM, and Sundays at 4:30 PM EST, provides a platform for open and honest discussions on a range of topics, from self-improvement to social issues.
But Sharrarne’s connection to the Super Bowl Soulful Celebration runs even deeper. As the founder of the Black Door Society, she has been at the forefront of promoting unity and diversity in the entertainment world. Her commitment to opening doors for talented individuals of all backgrounds has made her a respected figure in the industry. Sharrarne delivered on this mission by opening the door for Dr. Marcea to cover the silver anniversary of this extraordinary event in her place.
The Super Bowl Soulful Celebration is a unique and multicultural event that brings together NFL players, top Gospel and mainstream artists, and special guests for an evening of joyful music, football excitement, hope, and fellowship. Melanie Few, the executive producer of this event for the past 25 years, is the only woman and person of color to produce an official NFL-sanctioned event during Super Bowl week. Melanie has worked tirelessly on this capstone event and told Dr. Marcea “I am so very grateful to have made it to 25 years.”
One of the co-hosts for the 25th Anniversary of the Super Bowl Soulful Celebration is Tichina Arnold, known for her role in the CBS hit show “The Neighborhood.” She and her fellow co-host, Cedric The Entertainer, aim to create a powerful ministry at the Super Bowl event that touches hearts through their performances.
This year’s celebration with the theme “Just Believe” boasts an impressive lineup of performers, including Kirk Franklin, Earth Wind and Fire, Mary Mary, Robin Thicke and Rachel Platten, who will grace the stage with their incredible talents.
Not to be outdone, several remarkable male honorees will receive awards during the event, such as Demar Hamlin of the Buffalo Bills, Markquese Bell of the Dallas Cowboys, CJ Stroud of the Houston Texans, and Nate Burleson, co-host of CBS Mornings and host of NFL Today. They will be honored for their outstanding contributions on and off the field.
In a nod to the power of female leadership, three incredible women will be awarded the Essence Glass Ceiling Breaker Award presented by Mielle. Dasha Smith, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of the National Football League; Kimberly Fields, Senior Vice President of Football Business Strategy at the NFL; and Sandra Douglass, President of the Las Vegas Raiders, will be celebrated for their pioneering work in a male-dominated field.
To all the viewers who cherish the combination of music, football, faith, and women’s empowerment, make sure to tune in to CBS on Saturday, February 10th, at 8 PM EST to witness this unforgettable celebration. Dr. Marcea Whitaker and Sharrarne Morton encourage you to watch the women of the Super Bowl Soulful Celebration inspire and uplift your spirits as they come together for a night of unity, faith, and fantastic entertainment.
