Since the onset of the New Year, gospel singer Kim Burrell has been embroiled in a colossal scandal centered on a homophobic sermon.
Indeed, as reported, a video hit the web of the “pastor” branding gay people as “perverted” and implying that they will die in 2017.
The fall-out / fall from grace has been well-documented, with a horde of names publicly lashing Burrell. A list that includes Yolanda Adams, Chaka Khan, and Octavia Spencer.
Perhaps most notable was Ellen Degeneres, who control, alt, deleted a scheduled performance from Burrell on her show.
Pharrell Williams, who she was set to perform with, did still appear and addressed the drama head-on.
See what he had to say of his ‘I See A Victory’ collaborator below…
Very well articulated.
‘The Hidden Figures’ soundtrack, which houses Williams and Burrell’s duet, hits retail tomorrow.
