As the Kim Burrell Vs Homosexual story generate more heat, the singer has been judged and treated harshly beyond her ‘offense’ if we were to judge by human law. Since her “Perverted” comment surfaced online, Rolling Stone has reported that her Bridging the Gap radio show, which premiered last June on the Texas Southern University radio station KTSU, is now no longer. The university announced through a statement that the “Kim Burrell show is no longer airing as part of KTSU Radio programming,”.
Not only that, Burrell was then banned from appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to sing her new single with Pharrell Williams I See A Victory, instead Pharrell was asked to perform another song. Speaking at the interview, Pharrell said:
“Well, there’s no space, there’s no room for any kind of prejudice in 2017 and moving on. Like, there’s no room. I… she’s a fantastic singer, and I love her, just like I love everybody else, and we all got to get used to that. We all have to get used to everyone’s differences and understand that this is a big, gigantic, beautiful, colorful world, and it only works with inclusion and empathy. It only works that way.”

…and as if that’s not enough, Burrell’s primary Facebook page has now been removed without explanation.
As at the time of writing this post, her Facebook page reads, “This Facebook post is no longer available. It may have been removed or the privacy settings of the post may have changed.”
Some of her fellow gospel artiste has responded to the issue, and everyone respect the greater calling of the singer, irrespective of whatever anyone may say. Voicing her own view also is Jessica Reedy.
#Repost @jessicareedy1 That beautiful woman with the microphone name is Ms Kim Burrell @kimburrelllove. This is a picture taken while on the festival of praise tour.. what a lot of people don’t know is I was extremely scared to be on such a platform with her, Fred, Donnie, Hez, Isreal, Zacardi and Ike.. many time she would find me crying and invite me into her dressing room so that I wasn’t alone. She would not only console me, reassure me but she gave me convicting, straightforward, no nonsense advice about some things I was dealing with personally. It hurt in many spots, but it was true.. I didn’t see it as her judging or showing hatred towards me, but her loving me enough to say what others Close to me wouldn’t. She held me accountable. I wanted to be upset sometimes when she would give me advice, I wanted to say “but what about you, I’m sure you have flaws too” but what she did was remind me that we both took a vow to serve the Lord and we not only accepted him as our savior but as our father. She reminded me that our father has rules for his house, just like our earthly fathers have rules for their house and that though his love, grace and mercy would never waver, it is still our duty to be obedient to what he ask of us. She reminded me that she was human and that she did in fact make mistakes, but that she still had to be held accountable to Our fathers rules of his house. I remember her saying ” even if I fail in areas, that doesn’t mean I bring the word of God to my standard of sin, but instead I have to continue to preach the truth, even if we all fall short of it”. She reminded me that we still, every day, as examples have to try our best to work toward living up to that standard. Will we miss the mark constantly, yes, The goal is not to be perfect but to strive for perfection. What that means is everyday have the best intentions and use our best efforts to be the best human beings we can under the guidance and rule of the Holy Spirit. So ms Kim Burrell I would like to Publicly thank you for being a friend to me privately on the road and sharpening my iron. Thank you and I love you.
