Fans In Uproar that Beyonce Is Singing Ledisi's 'Selma' Song at GRAMMYs
By Jackie Willis
While the Beyhive is excited for Beyonce's GRAMMY Awards performance tonight, Feb. 8, not everyone is sharing those sentiments.
There's some controversy surrounding the Queen B performing the spiritual song "Precious Lord, Take My Hand" at the awards show, seeing as singer Ledisi is the one who sings the track for the Martin Luther King, Jr. biopic Selma.
Golden Globe winners Common and John Legend will perform their Selma song "Glory" at the GRAMMYs but some fans feel Ledisi is getting snubbed by Beyonce for her chance to sing her song from the Oscar-nominated movie. "No one is saying Beyonce shouldn't perform at #GRAMMYs. What we're saying is it should be Ledisi performing the song for #Selma perf," one fan tweeted.
"Ledisi sung it in the Selma film, so they should have asked her," another tweet reads. "Beyonce doesn't have the chops for that one. She'll over do it."
