Verzuz continued on Easter Sunday (April 17) with a special showdown between gospel sibling duos Mary Mary and BeBe & CeCe Winans, which took place live from the historic Vibiana venue in downtown Los Angeles.

Mary Mary (composed of sisters Erica Campbell and Trecina Atkins-Campbell) delivered some of their all-time classics while brother and sister duo Bebe & Cece Winans (né Benjamin Winans and Priscilla Winans respectively) sang some of their fan-favorite tunes atop the brightly lit stage.

From Mary Mary’s “Get Up” to BeBe & CeCe Winans’ “Lost Without You,” attendees didn’t know which gospel smash to expect next. Here are some the most memorable moments from the fun-filled Verzuz Easter edition.

Stevie Wonder is a surprise guest 

As if fans weren’t happy enough to see all four Grammy-winning singers, Stevie Wonder also made a special cameo and delivered an important message. “What a perfect way to celebrate this Resurrection Day,” Stevie said, before saying of the friendly competition, “It was incredible, I would say it was a tie.”

“It was wonderful just to hear the music and celebration of the most high,” he added.

Wonder then made a statement, “There is no better way to wake the world up to where and what we need to do. For those of you who choose to hate, for those of you who choose to not make sure that everyone has voting rights. For those of you that take 1,200 years to sign an anti-lynching law… God has made a promise to us that he will fulfill. But America, you have so much possibility. Grow up and get the job done.”

Afterwards, BeBe Winans jokingly urged Wonder to sing a line from the icon’s own 1973 gospel classic “Jesus Children of America.”
