The BET Sunday Best Season 5 winner is off to an incredible start in 2013 after a whirlwind year.
The 18-year-old singing sensation was an unknown contestant from a small town just six months ago on BET’s popular reality singing competition and has now taken top billing, made history as both the youngest winner and the first male winner of the series, and secured his place as a household name and mainstay in the gospel music industry.
Rogers is Nashville bound for next week’s Stellar Awards and will be on hand for multiple artist showcases including giving a musical tribute to Marvin Sapp at the Urban Soul Rewind Showcase along with co-hosting Friday Night Live at the famed BB Kings with singer, Maurette Brown Clark.
