Beyonce releases a behind the scenes look of her preparing for her Grammy Performance; singing Mahalia Jackson’s precious lord, Take My Hand…

In the grainy black and white video Beyonce explains,

“My grandparents marched with Dr. King. My father was a part of the first generation of Black men that attended an all-White school. My father has grown up with a lot of trauma from those experiences. I feel like now I can sing for his pain. I can sing for my grandparents’ pain. I can sing for some of the families that have lost their sons.”

 

 

 

 

No shade, but now Beyonce’ is acknowledging her father? Girl? Please stop with the fake theatrics… I love Bey though…. But she should of just let Ledisi slay… Because I wasn’t amused by her performance..
