Step aside I Want To Sing Gospel... there's a new gospel search in town and this one will hopefully! deliver more staying power.

BET is on a search for South African and Nigerian gospel voices for an international season of their gospel reality show Sunday Best.

The series has been off-air for four years and now it's back with an international twist: 20 international finalists will be competing on the show in the US, with South Africa and Nigeria included.

The show wants to find one outstanding gospel voice from South Africa and one from Nigeria. The prize: an all-expenses paid trip to the US to film the series between 15 April and 15 May and a recording contract for the winner.

If you have the pipes to enter, this is what you need to know:
