Reader I wasn't aware that Pastor Kim Burrell has been 'uninvited' from the trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards Ceremony this month and will not be honored alongside Marvin Sapp and others. In my humble opinion as a real Christian, any Gospel Artist/Preacher/Pastor/Teacher that participated in the BMI after this should be ashamed of themselves.
I agree anyone who hosts a show has the right to deny someone a promo opp if they feel that person conflicts with their show/brand. I get it. But this BMI award was to honor a lifetime of career achievements that you can't deny despite whether you like Kim or not, and has nothing to do with her church or sermon. It has everything to do with corporate sponsorship and advertisers. But guess what, sadly, the gospel music community and "the church" is still not unified enough to do anything about it. This is not right.
