The popular Gospel Neo-Soul artist, Lisa McClendon, is in need of our prayers this morning as she took to social media to publicly call out her husband, Pastor Maurice Brailsford’s, alleged infidelity.
The singer/songwriter who brought us songs such as ‘Uphold Me’, ‘Pause’ and ‘Million Dollars’; and is the author of the young women’s empowerment devotional – ‘The Proverbial Girl’ wrote this heart-felt post on Facebook:
Because it’s NOT RIGHT!!!! These so called MEN OF GOD are wolves. And I didn’t catch all these years. They HIDE behind GIFTS and TALENTS and we oooooo and awwwwwww and call it ANOINTING. IT’S NOT!!! GIFTS may come without REPENTANCE but NOT INTEGRITY!! I gave him chance after chance to come clean and he just tried to make me FEEL DUMB, like he’s been doing. He got some people FOOLED but my hopes it that EVERYONE WON’T BE. It’s time WOMEN to STOP letting these PIMP PREACHERS take advantage of us then look like the HERO and make REAL MEN OF GOD look bad.
Look you ain’t gotta believe me. MADMAN and the women he’s been messing with KNOWS the TRUTH.
So since he wants to secretly try to destroy my name let me just EXPOSE THIS CON MAN!!!”
Lisa McClendon also shared her story on the live broadcasting app – ‘Periscope’, where she received approval from her mother to expose her husband who is the founding Pastor of ‘The Life Center, Inc’ in Charlotte, NC. In this video she says;
She goes on to say:
This is Lisa’s second marriage, the first of which was an abusive relationship. There are also 10 children involved in this situation. She is an artist that has always worn her heart in her music and has shared her life with us through song. Her transparency has brought thousands of fans to her side who can relate to her lyrics of the difficulties in love, juggling motherhood and maintaining her relationship with the Lord.
