Pastor Paula White, senior pastor of New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida shimmered on the red carpet at the 2013 Trumpet Awards in daring red halter dress.
“I'm excited & honored to be here in Atlanta at the Trumpet Awards with Xernona Clayton!” said Pastor White on her “Paula White Ministries” Facebook page. “She is amazing & inspiring :)”
Clayton is the Founder, President and CEO of the Trumpet Awards Foundation, Inc. and Creator and Executive Producer of the Foundation’s Trumpet Awards. The televised event, which highlights African American accomplishments and contributions, began in 1993, and is now distributed internationally to over 185 countries around the world.
White, who showed up at the star-studded affair solo, is the ex-wife of Pastor Randy White, with whom she co-founded Without Walls International Church in Tampa. At Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Woman Thou Art Loosed 2012 conference, the divorced mother introduced her biological son Bradley to thousands of women at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA.
She shared his inspiring testimony of how young Bradley went from being a victim of sexual abuse by another man, addicted to drugs, and a self-proclaimed atheist, to a powerful preacher and intercessor.
White, who has candidly shared her own struggle with prescription drug abuse, eating disorders, and depression, made constant headlines in late 2011 and early 2012 for her controversial takeover of New Destiny. The position became available after its 42-year-old Founder, Zachery Tims, died in a NYC hotel of a suspected drug overdose.
Today, January 28, marks the expansion of Paula White's s media enterprise.
Her faith-based talk show, "Paula White Today," will now be made available on the Sky Angel network Monday through Friday at 11am ET.
