Kim Burrell Blacklisted for being Anti-Gay

It appears that Kim Burrell went a little too far with her anti=gay remarks during a recent sermon that went viral where she called homosexuality “perverted.” Not only was she disinvited to appear on the Ellen Show with Pharrell, Kim Burrell will not take part in next weekend’s BMI Trailblazers of Gospel Music Honors, the performance rights organization announced on Friday (Jan. 6).

And, to top it all off, Kim Burrell Radio show has been canceled from Texas Southern University’s KTSU radio station.

In a statement, BMI announced Burrell’s removal from the ceremony scheduled for Jan. 14:

“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 to allow the focus to remain on the songwriters and their music. BMI has 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.”

BMI further clarified the statement to Billboard to explain Burrell is no longer being honored, in addition to being pulled from the ceremony.

Pharrell Williams did appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Jan. 5, 2017 where he and Ellen discussed Kim Burrell’s Anti-Gay remarks noting:

“There’s No Room for Prejudice in 2017”

    In this life, you’ll either serve the Lord or Satan, it won’t be both. Plain and simple. Put whatever spins on the gospel to fit ANY unGodly lifestyle, and you’re just about reprobate. Kim, the industry is just going to be a place for a true Saint of God. The industry has indeed already sold out and anyone who seeks fame and fortune from it, will sacrifice their soul.

  • She may not be right in the eyes of some “men or women”, but she will be blessed by God, for not compromising her faith, for itching ears. I just wish she would have spoke out against ALL sin, and not just homosexuality. SIN IS SIN!!!!!! We cannot pick and choose one over the other. Just as the bible says homosexuality is a sin, so is adultery, lying, stealing, fornication, gossiping and many others.

    She spoke the truth, I’m glad there’s someone whose able to stand for what the bible says. Perversion is perversion period. My encouragement goes to Kim continue to preach the truth besides promotion comes from the Lord and not man. Those who have side lined her know whose they are!


    Nothing is farther than the truth! The Homosexual community want Christians to feel guilty and call us haters.Its the same type of twisted thinking that killed Jesus.Truth becomes a lie!
