Shirley Caesar reacts to going viral in #UNameItChallenge
A clip of Shirley Caesar has been going viral in the #UNameItChallenge ever since she said, “I got greens, beans, potatoes, tomatoes.”
The gospel singer has since been featured in memes as well as videos of people singing along to the catchy tune and creating music to go with it.
But Caesar is a good sport about the whole thing, and she spoke exclusively to The Willie Moore Jr. Show about her sudden viral fame and even gave her own performance of the song!
The gospel legend said she discovered the viral meme after a member of her church brought it to her attention. Ceasar said the clip was taken from the end of her sermon titled “Hold My Mule.”
“I was so shocked to see them dancing…it’s so good to me,” she said, adding that she will be performing the tune during an upcoming show in Columbia, South Carolina.
