As reported by LOLDarian, Karen Clark Sheard was scheduled to perform today in Washington, DC at the National Organization Marriage (NOM) tour for the grand finale of the march against gay marriage but it looks like Karen had a change of heart or maybe a “schedule conflict” (a term overused in the music industry). No official word was given from NOM or by Karen’s PR on why she did not perform.
Fourteen year married gospel recording artist couple Deitrick and Damita Haddon took up Karen’s slack at the event and performed proclaiming sacred marriage for a man and woman. During their performance of ”I Gotta A Praise”, Deitrick shouted to the crowd to grab someone of the opposite sex and do the praise dance with him and his wife. Watch below.
