On the GRAMMY red carpet Sunday, Ledisi addressed the controversy over Beyonce performing her song from Selma, the spiritual “Precious Lord, Take My Hand.”
ET’s Kevin Frazier asked Ledisi if she knew why Beyonce was picked to sing the song? She admitted that she “had no clue” why Beyonce was asked to sing the song instead of her, but she did share that she was excited to play an iconic figure in Selma and sing the old spiritual that has been going on for a long time. Ledisi went on to say that she was happy to be able to portray her version of the song and now Beyonce’s generation will know the song as well.
