For weeks, it appeared that Michigan's Jessica Reedy seemed to be the likely favorite to win BET's "Sunday Best," an "American Idol"-like competition.

But the public vote (through emails and calls) proved something different. On Sunday, Y'Anna Crawley of Mount Rainier, Md., was crowned the winner of the 10-week popular gospel show in its second season.

Crawley, 32, won a national recording contract and a 2009 Lincoln MKS.

Crawley performed "The Promise," a song written by Lou "Buster" Brown, Scott "Shavoni" Parker and Ryan Sims on the season finale. This song will also be her first single on her debut project, according to BET.
