Kelly Price Issues Official Statement About Singing Adultery Anthem At Gospel Concert
Grammy-nominated singer Kelly Price has the internet ablaze over her eyebrow-raising performance of classic adultery anthem “As We Lay” at the Indiana Black Expo Gospel celebration.
Isn’t “As We Lay” by Shirley Murdock though?? Kelly adds:
Kelly has now issued an official statement about the concert and says religious haters need to get off her back about the show:
R&B Recording artist Kelly Price said a series of production errors led to her performing a song that was considered inappropriate to many audience members during the Indiana Black Expo (IBE) on Sunday, July 17 in Indianapolis. The six-time Grammy Award nominee revealed she was caught by surprise when the Expo organizers made a huge scheduling error during the “We Love Music” Conference. Price was also concerned about the negative feedback on social media before the Expo issued an apology for the mix-up.
In a statement released by the Indiana Black Expo, the organizers said, “Ms. Price was never scheduled to perform as part of the IBE’s Gospel Explosion. Ms. Price was originally scheduled to perform two songs at 3:00 p.m., an hour before the start of the Gospel Explosion. A last minute change in schedule resulted in Ms. Price performing close to the start of the Gospel Explosion. IBE has much respect for Ms. Price and is a huge fan and supporter of her work. IBE apologizes to Ms. Price for the change in schedule that caused people to believe that performance was part of our Gospel Explosion.”
“I understand that some people in the audience were offended,” said Price. “Thank you, Indy Black Expo for standing in truth with me on this. I appreciate you for inviting me to be a part of this weekend’s festivities. I look forward to being with you again. Now that the facts are out there, maybe the real issue can be heard and dealt with. Why is it so hard for God’s people to display God’s love instead of viciously attacking people on social media? A REAL conversation needs to be had.”
Jesus take the microphone!
