Grammy-nominated Gospel singer nearly kicked off plane for singing as God requested (video)

Originally published at: Grammy-nominated Gospel singer nearly kicked off plane for singing

To quote a response on twitter “…it’s a flight, not a venue.”


Agreed. I want to get on the plane and have as little interaction with anyone who’s not my family as possible. I don’t care if she was nominated for all the Grammy’s - sit down and eat your stropwaffel like the rest of us.


This seems to be (yet another) of those cases where, if the best excuse you’ve got is that god told you to, really just don’t; please.


I’m getting real strong Main Character vibes from her.


I’m remided of an experience on a suburban Paris bus a few years ago.

A group of about ten or twelve, youngish (maybe early 20s) black ladies and gentlemen got on the bus. They were all done up in their Sunday best and were evidently coming from (or maybe going to) church.

They struck up singing gospel songs, in French, in three-part-harmony.

It was a very singular, beautiful experience and I’m tearing up, smiling at the memory.


“I’m nominated for two Grammies.”

“Well, on the return flight you’re going to have to stow them under the seat in front of you. We don’t have Grammy storage in coach.”


Just curious, has the Lord ever told someone to STFU?

Please sit down…


IME when someone says “I’m just doing what God told me too” , it’s something they were going to do anyway.

How often have you heard these people say “I was going to do this annoying thing, but then God said don’t, so I didn’t”?



And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Matthew 6:5-8 KJV


The small amount of joy she brings to a few people on the plane is outweighed by the amount of stress and anxiety that shit causes other people in the same situation.

Flying is already enough of an experience for most… a screaming child in seat ahead for 7 hours while crossing the Atlantic comes to mind.

Lady… the wing has better acoustics, go sit there.


They are the kind of deity who would just make someone mute if they wanted to. Unfortunately they also invented glossolalia, so I wouldn’t rely on them.
