Gospel Singer, Kim Burrell Apologizes for “Ugly” Church Sermon, Threatens Critics with Legal Action

Written by on July 21, 2022

Kim Burrell has expressed regret for the shocking remarks made during a church sermon that has gone viral.

However, her words were paired with a warning for those dabbling in “slander and defamation” of her name.

In a video that has now been watched millions of times online, the Gospel singer is seen saying:

“You choose up. Find you some value, you know?

Sometimes before we get friends we have to do an interview: How long you been broke? How many times have you changed your name on your light bill? How many of your bills are in your little cousin’s name? Do you live in a trailer home or a house?”

Elsewhere, she quipped:

“I don’t know maybe you got a little left from your PPP loan. Prayer, Praise and Power.. you understand.” 

Oddly, concluding she said:

“I haven’t chosen anyone to be ugly yet. God is good. God is great. You all look great. Most of you have on hats covering most of that anyway. Here’s to you.”

While the congregation appeared to agree, social media en masse did not. And the blowback has been unrelenting.

Addressing the drama, Burrell said:

“As a kingdom citizen and a woman of integrity, I can acknowledge that some of my words, even if said in jest can be offensive. My intention is never to hurt anyone but to spread love, laughter and more importantly, the gift which God has given me in song.

If anyone was offended I can sincerely say I apologize.”

She then went on to threaten legal action against critics for “slandering” and “defaming” her character.
