To date, Whitney’s rendition of the Chaka Khan classic has over 82 million views on YouTube alone.
In the viral clip, CeCe Winanssays, “When you aim to please God…then a lot of offers that come my way…I don’t even have to think about.”
One of my dear friends who has gone on to be with the Lord, praise God. She was so famous…she was so famous and she let me know that I didn’t want to be famous…was Whitney Houston.
She was my dear sister and friend. And I remember she was about to do one of her big videos and it was ‘I’m Every Woman.’
It’s a great video, right? A really nice…good…the song is when you think about how it was written it’s a great song, right?
But, the lyrics don’t line up with the word of God, right?
So, she said, ‘CeCe, I want you to be in the video. But, I know you not gone be in it.’
I said, ‘You’re absolutely right.’
Because it started off with, ‘I can cast a spell.’ I’m not singing that!
But, notice how that message was all wrapped up in a beat.
Ya’ll get so hooked onto these beats and it’s like demonic.
You’re listening to demonic stuff and you’re wondering why you don’t know what’s going on.
