Dorinda Clark-Cole is defending Beyonce following Bishop Patrick Wooden’s recent comments about her song ‘Church Girl’. If you recall, Bishop calls her new song “sacrifice”. In a church sermon, Bishop said,
“To sing a sample of the song of a real church woman, Twinkie Clark. I don’t know if she knew what she was going to do with the song. But she knew she was not saved.” He added, “I pray to God that a harsh denunciation of what she did to that song comes out. It shows that we don’t speak up. No one respects the church”.
However, Dorinda 1/4 of Clark’s legendary sisters didn’t feel the same way. Dorinda says people 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 to have defended Bey. Deitrick Hadden also shared a message.
He captioned the post, “Let @beyonce create songs for her audience and you create gospel songs for your audience. Then mind your own business and let God be God. If you have trouble or worry about Beyoncé, just pray for her strength! “
Pastor also commended Twinkie’s talent, saying, “I’m glad @twinkieclark is being rewarded after several fake gospel labels scam the young, innocent Twinkie out of all her publications it! Twinkie is one of my musical heroes, and I’m glad she gets paid. “
Queen Bey never reciprocates the hate she receives, but you know Mama Tina has always supported her daughter. She retweeted Deitrick’s message on her Instagram page, showing solidarity.
Roomies, what do you think of this situation?
