What Happened at Oprah's Sunday Brunch with Gospel Artists and Hollywood Singers?

We remember in 2006 when we saw this video of Oprah Winfrey's gift to her Hollywood friends and buddies when the were invited to her mansion for Sunday weekend brunch she then recently bought in Southern California. The event was taped of course and sprinkled with all the class and style you could image from a billionaire's taste. The event was a weekend lavished with good catered food, beautiful flowers and decorations presented in the bountiful backyard of her estate.

While she invited many of her Hollywood friends like Tyler Perry, Sindey Poiter, Maya Angelou and many others, she also provided most of the entertainment from famous gospel artists like the late Bishop Walter Hawkins, Traimaine Hawkins, De'Netria "Aretha" Champ, their were many others in attendance that added to the spectaculars of the event.

Though we are not sure what intentions Oprah had at that time, did Hollywood or any of her guests and those watching  feel God on that day? We know Oprah has always known exactly what to do to draw a crowd around her at any given time for any brainstorming event she feels will give her approval, accolades, some bit of control for her favor, we are not sure she knew what she did on this day.

On the video, BeBe Winans sings and then like they do at church, he passed around the mic to all the singers that could add to the gospel favored event. By passing the mic to Dionne Warwick, Shirley Caesar, Patti Labelle, Chaka Khan, Valerie Simpson and others, it gave the impression that God, as Oprah added, "showed up and showed out" feeling.
