When the 59th annual Grammy Awards confused gospel music powerhouse and Pastor Shirley Caesar with fellow gospel music veteran CeCe Winans, the latter had something to say about the mishap.
Caesar accepted a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys Sunday, but a reported technical glitch posted Winans’ picture instead of the honoree due to receive the award. After Grammy’s producer Ken Ehrlich apologized for the mishap in an interview with The Associated Press, Caesar graciously accepted the apology on social media.
“Appreciate apology! Again just honored to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award,” she wrote.
However, Winans wanted the world to know her feelings on the matter.
“You can’t mistake Shirley Caesar’s beauty or voice! Thank you for a lifetime of blessings,” Winans tweeted in her own message. “I adore you. Congrats on the well-deserved Grammy!”
When she visited daytime talk show “The Real” Thursday, Winans revealed that she wasn’t in the room when her husband discovered the error.
