A portion of Pastor Shirley Caesar performing “Hold My Mule” got flipped into a song and then a meme via the #UNAMEITCHALLENGE. Caesar says she’s excited by all the attention, but she’s cool on all the gyrations.
She told TMZ: “I can even put up with the dancing. but all of the shaking and the twerking—I just want everyone to know that I’m a Gospel singer, I’m a born again believer, I’m a Pastor and I don’t ever want anything, not anything, to bring a reflection on what I stand for.”
And there it is.
Feel free to sing along, just don’t be a heathen. Peep the interview below.
