[Tune In] – Tonight on CBS 2/10 @ 8 p.m. ET/7C

25th Annual Super Bowl Soulful Celebration Kick off Super Bowl 2024 With a Star-Studded Red Carpet

The vibrant Pearl Concert Theater at Palms Resort Casino set the stage for a historic evening of inspiration and entertainment as the “Super Bowl Soulful Celebration” celebrated its quarter-century milestone. Hosted by the dynamic duo Cedric the Entertainer and Tichina Arnold, and under the musical direction of Emmy Award-winning and Grammy-nominated Adam Blackstone, the event was an electrifying fusion of faith, fellowship, and football, directed by the talented Leon Knoles. The one-hour special premieres tonight, Saturday, February 10 at 8 p.m./9c on CBS and streams on Paramount+ (*live for Paramount+ with Showtime subscribers) as well as on-demand on Pluto TV and cbs.com for 90 days after the special airs.

Cedric the Entertainer and Tichina Arnold host the Super Bowl Soulful Celebration 25th Anniversary on February 7, 2024 in Las Vegas, NV at the Palms Casino Resort. 

The show features performances from a stellar lineup of artists, including Earth, Wind & Fire, T-Pain, Rachel Platten, Mickey Guyton, Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, Robin Thicke, The Players Choir, and more. Southern University’s “HBCU Band Drumline, also known as the “Human Jukebox,” helped open the star-studded event, showcasing the rich talent and cultural pride of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), a wonderful way to highlight Black History Month. It’s a monumental moment where the spirit of football and cultural pride unite, promising an unforgettable kickoff to the biggest weekend in sports that will set hearts racing and fans cheering.

Themed “Just Believe,” the celebration aims to uplift and inspire, providing a platform for some of the most dynamic talents in the soul and R&B scene to shine. From the recognition of HBCU alumni like Markquese Bell, the “New Beginnings” award presentation to Damar Hamlin and his parents, and to the heartfelt testimony of CJ Stroud during “The Faith in Action” award presentation, the event touched on themes of community, faith, and purpose.

In his acceptance speech, Stroud expressed how he discovered his purpose to serve the Lord and inspire youth, driven by the talent instilled in his heart. Encouraging others to use their burning passions as fuel for God’s calling, he emphasized how a mentor empowered him with these words of wisdom: “Your passion is greedy but your purpose is for others!” 

Nate Burleson was honored with the Lifetime of Inspiration award, with CBS Mornings Host Gayle King attending in support and participating in the presentation via a video package.

Earth, Wind & Fire, and T-Pain’s collaboration undoubtedly stole the show, setting a high standard for the energy and excitement of the upcoming Super Bowl. The event’s emphasis on the significance of national HBCUs further highlighted its commitment to celebrating diversity and fostering unity.

As the Super Bowl Soulful Celebration reached its crescendo, the high-vibration energy in the house undoubtedly left attendees buzzing with anticipation for the big game. With its blend of music, inspiration, football players, and star-studded performances, the event once again proved itself as an essential part of the Super Bowl experience, providing a soulful and celebratory kickoff to one of the year’s most anticipated sporting events. Don’t miss this epic fusion of sports and soul, where history is made and the future is bright!

The evening brings together an ensemble of NFL players, gospel/contemporary Christian performers, comedy, and award-winning musicians spanning all genres on one stage for a spectacular show filled with song, hope, laughter, and uplifting messages of inspiration.
