More than 1 million people watched Kim Burrell rail against “that perverted homosexual spirit” in a controversial sermon clip that led to the gospel singer getting pulled from a performance on “Ellen” and facing ongoing backlash from LGBT advocates.
Burrell was scheduled to perform a song from the “Hidden Figures” soundtrackwith Pharrell on “Ellen” this week, but the host canceled Burrell’s invitation. Pharrell called her a “fantastic singer,” but said, “There’s no space, there’s no room for any kind of prejudice in 2017.”
She had been named a co-honoree at next weekend’s BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards, but the organization uninvited her due to the recent remarks. Also, her radio show — airing out of Texas Southern University — has been canceled. (washingtonpost.com – Kate Shellnut) Click here to get the full story.
