The biggest event in the gospel calender - the 6th SABC Crown Gospel Awards, took place over the weekend at the iNkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban.

The who's who of the gospel industry came out in their numbers looking extravagant and in the hope of winning an award or just supporting their favourite artists.

Of course it would be wrong to talk of the gospel genre in South Africa and not mention Dr Rebecca Malope. Malope was the opening act of the night, singing her hit song 'Uyinqwele Simakade'.

'The Queen of Gospel Music' danced her performance away, taking her shoes off on stage while she showed off her dance moves. The ever-so-hyper Rebecca was later joined by Mbuso Matsebula, and the duo did a collaboration on 'Let It Rain'; and while Mbuso seemed too serious and caught up in the 'spirit', Rebecca on the other hand seemed too excited that she only managed to sing one line of the song before leaving the stage.

First Lady Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma, who sat next to founder of the awards Zanele Mbokazi, looked lovely in her purple outfit, singing along to most of the songs.

The biggest award of the night - 'Best Gospel Song', which was voted by the public and presented by Zanele Mbokazi, went to Dumi Mkokstad for his song 'Mbize' .
