Gospel singer Tasha Cobbs Leonard has come under a bit of fire for her decision to feature Nicki Minaj on one of the tracks of her new album.

Some in the Gospel community dragged her for the decision, claiming that Minaj was far too racy to be allowed to collaborate on a Gospel album.

Pastor John Gray, however, isn’t having any part of the controversy and instead slammed people who were being critical for not having Christian love in their hearts.

“Who’s allowed to worship God? We got gospel artists that are sleeping with everything moving, but you can still sing right? You got a little bottle under your cabinet, but you still sing right?” Gray told Jubilee Magazine while he was attending Cobbs Leonard’s album release party.

No matter how people feel about the collaboration, it was actually a long time coming for those who have paid attention to Minaj, who has long proclaimed her love for Cobbs Leonard and her music. Minaj has given plenty of love to the Gospel singer, and it was only natural that the two of them would collaborate.

Now, according to Gray, it’s time to let everyone worship in their own way, regardless of what people think of their life choices.
