Kim Burrell is your favorite singer’s, favorite singer.  Her powerful vocals, undeniable faith and her overall God-given talent have kept her in the music industry for over two decades.  While her strong faith is the major focal point of her music, artists like Adele, Brandy, Tyrese, Chaka Khan and more, have placed her on a pedestal as one of the greatest voices of our time. 

As many know, Whitney Houston personally selected her to sing in her televised tribute at The BET Honors.  The two were close friends and Burrell’s moving performance still draws the rawest of emotions.  Whitney herself was moved to tears by Burrell’s touching rendition of I Believe in You and Me.

Her music touches and inspires everyone and when she’s not giving God the glory on stage, she’s giving him the glory in her church and on her social media accounts daily.  In 2010, the Grammy-nominated singer founded The Love & Liberty Fellowship Pentecostal Overcoming Holy Church in her native, Texas.  She oversees many of its’ happenings and even serves as a Senior Pastor.

For blessing us with her unmovable faith, her undeniable talent and the understanding spirit she shares in her ministry and her life, Kim Burrell is our #WEW pick.
