Real Housewives Star Set To Release Gospel Single


When you think of Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss gospel doesn’t exactly come to mind. Kandi is a singer/songwriter so her experimenting with music is not a surprise. When the singer talked about doing a gospel record on the show, I must admit that I thought that she was venturing into the wrong lane.  Kandi is known for being open with her sexuality way more than being vocal about her religion.

Who am I to judge, if she wants to praise God and put out a single I’m all for it, if she’s doing it for the right reasons.


Kandi posted to Instagram:

On this episode of #RHOA you see part of the gospel song I was working on. I knew when I decided to do it that I would be criticized. That’s to be expected. I’m a single mom that had a child out of wedlock, I speak openly about sex on #KandiKoatedNights, I have #BedroomKandi, etc… I’m very honest about who I am. My great grand father & my grandfather were Bishops in The Church of God Holiness. I believe in God but I have always struggled with the rules of the church, just like a lot of people. The song “Stay Prayed Up” is like a testimony for me. Hopefully people with a similar struggle can relate. I’m posting the lyrics to the hook. I’m looking forward to you hearing the whole song next week!
