Gospel singer Kim Burrell says she credits entertainment mogul Steve Harvey for transforming her life through his powerful testimony.
Burrell, 43, performed on the "Steve Harvey Show" Wednesday to promote her sixth gospel album A Different Place. There she revealed that the talk show host had changed her life when he shared his testimony on a religious program.
"Can I just say this? When you went on a religious television show, I never been touched like that because you said everything that I wish I could have been able to say," Burrell told Harvey on the show. "This is the one thing you said that changed my life."
Burrell went on to reveal what Harvey said that inspired her.
"You go more than three syllables, count me out," she told Harvey."I ain't trying to use the big words. But the reason that I'm sitting here is because God knew He could trust me to say His name."
Although the singer is a fan of Oprah Winfrey, she admitted that interviewing with Harvey meant more to her.
"That's why I'm so glad to be here, this is bigger than Oprah for me and I love Oprah. I've been to her house and I appreciate it," she said. "But I'm saying, the status of what that stands for. This is the bigger picture for me. Thank you sir."
Tears visibly welled in the emotional talk show host's eyes as he said, "I ain't fittin' to cry."
