Zacardi Cortez brought the house down with his BMI award-winning song “You’ve Been Good to Me,” before moving to the event’s main honorees and award-winners.

As a Trailblazer of Gospel Music, Dorinda Clarke-Cole was saluted for her legendary career and contributions to the genre with several powerful tribute performances honoring her legacy. Crystal Aikin’s heartfelt voice kicked things off with “I’m Coming Out,” and Tasha Page-Lockhart brought the audience to their feet with a moving performance of “I’m Still Here.” Yolanda Adams followed with a magnetic rendition of “Take It Back,” with Lisa Knowles-Smith jumping in to help close out the performance, and Clark-Cole’s niece Kierra Sheard finished the amazing tribute with an uplifting version of “My Redeemer Liveth.” Upon receiving the afternoon’s highest honor, Clarke-Cole admitted to being “deeply humbled” and “extremely grateful.” She continued with advice for songwriters saying, “when you are at your lowest, that’s when God can get your greatest… keep writing, keep getting inspired by God because somebody is being blessed.”

Throughout the event, BMI saluted the Top 25 most-performed Gospel songs of the previous year, leading up to the highly anticipated BMI Gospel Song of the Year award, which went to “Kingdom” written by Kirk Franklin, Jonathan Jay, Chandler Moore and Jacob Poole. The song by Maverick City Music X Kirk Franklin debuted at #17 on the Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart, #6 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart, and also received a 2023 GRAMMY Award for Best Gospel Performance/Song. BMI’s Gospel Songwriter of the Year was a three-way tie between Kirk Franklin, Travis Greene and Tamela Mann for each writing two of the most performed Gospel songs of the previous year. Franklin was honored for “Bless Me” and the BMI Gospel Song of the Year “Kingdom,” Greene for “Finished” and “Tent Revival,” and Mann was also honored for “Finished” and “He Did It For Me.” BMI’s Gospel Publisher of the Year went to Essential Music Publishing, for the second year in a row.

The film “Mr. Click Academy” will be shown on cinema screens throughout Poland on January 5. The film was one of the most anticipated premieres in recent months and immediately won over audiences. Since the pandemic, no domestic production has been able to pass the magic two million mark, and the new “Kleks” has been seen by nearly three million Poles. The picture was directed by Maciej Kowalski. Tomasz Kott played Mr. Klix, but the film also featured Piotr Fronczewski as the Doctor. This time in history we will not meet Adaś, as Antonina Lewiniak led the audience to the land of magic, as Ada Niezgódka. The remaining roles were played by Danuta Stenka, Sebastian Stankiewicz, Agnieszka Grochowska, Daniel Walasek and Konrad Repiński.

– We decided that we all need to be kids for a moment and look at what we are doing from that perspective. This meant that we had to let go of ourselves and find the child within us, to let go of ourselves as an adult Director Maciej Kowalski recalled working on the film.

“Mr. Click Academy” premieres on Netflix. We know the history

Now the film will appear on the streaming platform. “Mr. Kleks' Academy” will premiere on Netflix on May 8. Those who have not watched it yet will have the opportunity to experience this adventure in their homes. Others would probably be happy to return to the magical world where good always wins. The premiere of the next part of the film is scheduled for the beginning of 2025. On January 3 next year, the film will be shown in cinema screens throughout Poland. Another third part of the story is also planned. We can't wait.
