People are backing away from Kim Burrell as quickly as possible.
Ever since Burrell was caught on video going on a homophobic rant during a sermon, Burrell has seen massive backlash, and she is starting to lose job opportunities because of it.
Texas Southern University’s KTSU-FM has cancelled her radio show, “Bridging The Gap,” after less than a year being on the air, and the university released this statement about the cancellation: “The Kim Burrell Show is no longer airing as part of KTSU Radio programming.”
What’s more, now BMI has announced that it had asked Burrell not to participate in the Trailblazers of Gospel Music Honors, which is scheduled to take place next weekend, releasing the following statement: “BMI’s Trailblazers of Gospel Music is an annual celebration of gospel music and its many talented songwriters. Given the controversy surrounding this year’s co-honoree Kim Burrell, we have asked her to not take part in the ceremony in order to allow the focus to remain on the songwriters and their music. BMI was founded over 76 years ago with an open door policy to welcome songwriters across all genres, and that same spirit of tolerance, diversity and inclusiveness continues today.”
Additionally, Burrell is no longer being honored at the event, BMI announced.
