(Vibe) – Late near the midnight hour on Easter Sunday (April 17), saints gathered from far and wide to Los Angeles, California’s Cathedral of Saint Vibiana, formally known as Vibiana, for the Verzuz between gospel legends, Mary Mary and BeBe & CeCe Winans—hosted by KevOnStage.

Late near the midnight hour on Easter Sunday (April 17), saints gathered from far and wide to Los Angeles, California’s Cathedral of Saint Vibiana, formally known as Vibiana, for the Verzuz between gospel legends, Mary Mary and BeBe & CeCe Winans—hosted by KevOnStage.

As both duos breezed through their hits dating back decades including “Thankful,” “Close To You,” “Can’t Give Up Now,” “Walking,” “Lost Without You,” and “I’ll Take You There,” the night did not proceed without a bit of shade and, of course, some technical difficulties.

As CeCe began singing her Whitney Houston-assisted ballad, “Count On Me,” the livestream was suspended across platforms—potentially due to copyright issues—but the feed picked back up briefly as Mary Mary belted out with their praise-worthy tune, “Yesterday.” However, for the first time in Verzuz history, there was an encore performance of “Yesterday” since the feed cut out and not everyone got to witness the greatness bestowed upon us.

Following this Easter Sunday special, Verzuz returns with a Mother’s Day special on May 8, a boxing “Fight Night Music” special on May 14 featuring Cypress Hill vs. Onyx, and a Memorial Day weekend special.
