American gospel singer from Houston, Texas, Kim Burrell has received widespread condemnation and disapproval from around the world in response to a recent homophobic outburst.
Burrell’s outburst which has since gone viral on social media after been captured on video by a member of her congregation has resulted in the influential singer/songwriters reputation being tarnished and with many fellow performers criticising and distancing themselves from the gospel singer.
Pharrell Williams who featured Burrell on a recent track entitled I See a Victory, along with DeRay Mckesson, Chaka Kahn, Questlove, Yolanda Adams, and Octavia Spencer, have all since condemned Burrell’s rant.
Burrell’s appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show has also been cancelled by Ellen Degeneres herself with the openly gay talk show host tweeting, “For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show.”
