Dorinda Clark-Cole is coming to Beyonce’s defense after Bishop Patrick Wooden’s recent comments about her song ‘Church Girl.’ If you recall, Bishop referred to her new song as “sacrilege.” During a church sermon, Bishop said,
“To sample the song of a real church lady, Twinkie Clark. I don’t know whether she knew what she was going to do with the song or not. But she knows she not saved.” He added, “I pray to God that a stiff denunciation of what she did with that song is put out. It shows that we’re not speaking up. Nobody respects the church.”
However, Dorinda 1/4 of the legendary Clark Sisters doesn’t feel that way. Dorinda said that folks need to “leave Beyonce alone.” If you’re unfamiliar, the song samples The Clark Sisters’ song, “Center of Thy Will,” written by Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark.
Dorinda isn’t the only Gospel artist who has defended Bey. Deitrick Hadden also shared a message.
He captioned the post, “Let @beyonce make her song for her audience, and you make your gospel song for your audience. Then mind your own business and let God be God. If you have a problem or a concern about Beyoncé, just pray for her strength! ”
The pastor also praised Twinkie for talent, saying, “I’m glad that @twinkieclark is getting rewarded after some fake gospel label shyster swindled young, innocent Twinkie out of all her publishing! Twinkie is one of my musical heroes, and it does my heart so glad to know she’s getting paid.”
Queen Bey never responds to the hate she receives, but you know Mama Tina always has her daughter’s back. She reposted Deitrick’s message on her Instagram page, showing solidarity.
Roomies, what do you think of this situation?
