Gotta say, I caught most of this on FNC and HLN and a little bit on BET. Kind of wish they'd had enough lead time to trot out a full sports production truck for this. But, camera angles aside, I thoroughly enjoyed the service (if enjoyed is the proper term). Brought up Baptist with a lot of time spent in Black Baptist churches, I was really comfortable.
Highlight for me had to be Kevin Costner's stories. Dionne Warwick was a very elegant mistress of ceremonies. Can't believe Aretha Franklin didn't make it.
Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
