Price’s Time on “Sunday’s Best”
Singer Kelly Price recently made waves online after going on an explosive rant on Instagram. Her outburst seemingly stems from her brief tenure as a judge on the popular gospel music competition show “Sunday’s Best” from 2019-2020.
Price appeared alongside judges Erica Campbell, Jonathan McReynolds, Keyla Richardson, and host Kirk Franklin for just 12 episodes before departing the program. She has not previously explained the reasons behind her short-lived role.
Scathing Social Media Accusations
However, Price’s latest social media tirade may provide some insight. After criticizing Instagram itself for censoring a separate post of hers, the singer faced shade from a commenter regarding her Sunday’s Best involvement.
“Lord deliver us from pastor h—s and pedophiles. Deliver us from self-righteous congregants who send their money to liars and pimps in plain sight,” her response read in part.
The Gospel Industry’s “Dirty Secrets”
Price went on to cite her own family’s multigenerational ties to the church in explaining her disgust at the gospel community’s purported issues.
“I’m a child of a preacher 3+ generations and I have NO desire to be named among the gospel community. Wonder why? You don’t. Cuz you already know what it is and are content to be a part of the cover-up that had been happening for generations,” she wrote.
While the meaning behind Price’s shocking statements remains ambiguous, she clearly believes deeply rooted problems of abuse and enabling plague the gospel music industry.
Her sentiments suggest more clarity around her quick “Sunday’s Best” exit may yet emerge. For now, her fiery accusations alone have sparked much debate.
