DALLAS - Since last month, CW33 has been searching the heavens far and wide to find the best gospel singer in the Metroplex. Well our prayers have finally been answered and what better place to surprise the winner than at church?
Lawyer Turner thought we were showing up to get footage of him as one of the finalists in the contest but he would soon find out that he was, in fact, the actual winner of the competition.
After he got over the shock of it all Lawyer expressed his gratitude, "I'm extremely grateful because I know that it could've been anybody else."
Now Lawyer will be front and center on the Chevrolet Main Stage Thursday night to share his voice with the crowd for a Night of Inspiration and Gospel at the State Fair of Texas.
Lawyer’s father, Dewayne, thinks everyone is in for a treat, "Lawyer has a way of delivery that's magnetic and the way that he sings it makes you want to listen. He's very influential in his music and so I think it's going to be attractive to all the listeners."
As for Lawyer, Thursday can't get here soon enough, "I'm excited about seeing the other artists that I'm trying to aspire to be like. Just sharing the stage with them. I just saw Jazmine Sullivan a few weeks ago on that same stage so being able to walk the same stage with the other artists. I'm blown away."
If you want to hear Lawyer and the other gospel artists for yourself they’ll be at the State Fair Thursday. The first of two shows starts at 5:30pm with the second starting at 8:30pm.
