Beyoncé performs gospel hymn ‘Take My Hand, Precious Lord’ at Grammys...

Those first notes Beyoncé started out with were a little shaky to begin with, but she rebounded quite quickly after that. There has been a lot of uproar over the past week because a lot of people feel Ledisi should have performed the track. My thoughts on the matter? 

Ledisi should have sang the track, period. It would have made more sense. It is Ledisi's vocals for the song that is featured on the Selma soundtrack. Plus, Ledisi's emoting is way more superior and let's be honest, Beyoncé cannot outsing her. Don't get me wrong, Beyoncé did a nice job of the song. But I just don't think she took it to church the way Ledisi WOULD have done. On a positive note, Bey went home with three Grammy awards bringing her total to a whopping 20 Grammys. It certainly softens the blow of not winning Album of the Year that night.

Thoughts?
