…as she watches from outside.
kim burrell is still getting dragged.
her comment sections on social media are armageddon.
well she suffered another loss as “a gospel trailblazer”.
she got dropped to perform at the bmi gospel music event.
Kim Burrell will not take part in next weekend’s BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Honors, the performance rights organization announced on Friday (Jan. 6).
The announcement comes amidst a wide backlash against Burrell over a sermon she gave calling homosexuality “perverted.”
She has since been dropped from a scheduled performance on Ellen and had her show “Bridging the Gap with Kim Burrell” canceled from Texas Southern University’s KTSU radio station.
In a statement, BMI announced Burrell’s removal from the ceremony scheduled for Jan. 14:
“BMI’s Trailblazers of Gospel Music is an annual celebration of gospel music and its many talented songwriters. Given the controversy surrounding this year’s co-honoree Kim Burrell, we have asked her to not take part in the ceremony in order to allow the focus to remain on the songwriters and their music. BMI was founded over 76 years ago with an open door policy to welcome songwriters across all genres, and that same spirit of tolerance, diversity and inclusiveness continues today.”
BMI further clarified the statement to Billboard to explain Burrell is no longer being honored, in addition to being pulled from the ceremony.
i can just imagine her church sermon tomorrow.
“they trying to take my sanity lawd!
they trying to bring me down lawd!
they won’t get me there lawd!
see this is a test!
a test to see if i can handle the next level in life!
you gotta have something taken away for better!”
…or something to that effect.
the problem with all that is when you offend a few forests.
you become what you tell others to overcome.
she is now “the example”,
although christians have preached this sermon time and time again.
since we live in a “live” social media era,
it will now be brought to light.
i say she claim insanity and be done with it.
lowkey: people need to understand that its one thing to be outspoken,
but its another to be offensive.
you can be as outspoken as you want to be,
but when you are offending others…
that’s a problem.
