Gospel singer Kim Burrell is currently in the hospital battling pneumonia. Tyrese took to Instagram to reveal the singer’s condition stating she has pneumonia in both lungs. In addition, the singer’s medical expenses are beginning to pile up.
“Just three weeks ago, mother was in the best of spirits,” Tyrese shared on Instagram. The singer says he is very worried and in tears, praying Mama Kim can get to the other side of this unexpected health crisis. Since Kim became sick, the gospel artist has had to cancel five shows. Tyrese is now asking fans, friends, and family to donate and help Kim Burrell, as her medical expenses are $15,000.00.
Last year, Kim Burrell made headlines after making some very controversial statements about ‘ugly’ people and suggesting people screen their friend’s finances. The gospel singer told her congregation, “Sometimes before we get friends, we have to do an interview: How long you been broke? How many times have you changed your name on your light bill?” After receiving backlash, Kim Burrell issued an apology. “My intention is never to hurt anyone, but to spread love, laughter, and more importantly, the gift which God has given me in song. If anyone was offended, I can sincerely say I apologize,” the singer stated. She also later revealed that someone shot at her following the sermon going viral.
Fans were quick to dig up the gospel singer’s sermon in response to Tyrese donation request. Tyrese later removed the post from his Instagram account.
