Watch: Ledisi Speaks About The Beyonce ‘Selma’ Controversy And Why She Didn’t Perform with John Legend & Common

The uproar still continues as the public wants to know why Ledisi did not perform alongside Common and John Legend during their performance for this year’s Grammy’s ceremony, representing the iconic movie, SELMA. Instead, 20-time Grammy Award winner Beyonce belted out the lyrics of the spiritual, “Precious Lord, Take My Hand,” that Ledisi originally performed in the actual movie portraying gospel legend, Mahalia Jackson in the Martin Luther King, Jr. biopic.

When asked by reporter, ET’s Kevin Frazier as to “why she’s not singing the song?,” Ledisi says:

I don’t have a clue — but I will say, what I’m excited about is that I had the pleasure of playing an iconic figure in ‘Selma,’ and the song, “Precious Lord, Take My Hand,” it’s been going on forever – starting with the queen Mahalia Jackson, the queen of soul Aretha Franklin, then I was able to portray and sing my version of the song; and now we have Beyonce — I mean, her generation will now know this song — so now i’m apart of history. I look at it like that, instead of looking at it as a negative. To me, it’s a great, GREAT honor to be apart of a legacy of a great song by Thomas Dorsey.

When Kevin asked John Legend about the topic at hand, he says:

We were actually approached by Beyonce. She wanted to do an intro to our performance and introduce us,” Legend told Kevin. You don’t really say no to Beyonce if she asks to perform with you.

And this is why we LOVE Ledisi here at SFPL and fully support her! That was the most intelligent and mature answer that we have ever heard from any celebrity.

Great statement Ledisi! And you will hit that Grammy stage!
