Gospel singer Bobbi Storm was almost thrown off a plane when she burst into song upon learning she had been nominated for the Grammy Awards.
The artist revealed this by sharing a video on her social networks showing her exchange with a Delta Air Lines employee.
The man approached them and asked Bobbi Storm to shut up after she began singing her new song “We Can’t Forget Him” to the passengers.
“I just found out I’m nominated for two Grammy Awards. “My first time, guys,” the singer said in the video.
However, the situation escalated to the point that the airline employee warned him that he would not fly if he remained silent.
“I am your flight leader, I want you to follow my instructions. “If you cannot follow my instructions, you will not be able to take this flight,” the official warned.
Although some passengers applauded his performance, others said he shouldn’t have started singing on the plane.
The gospel singer was actually nominated not as a solo artist, but as part of the group Maverick City Music.
The group is nominated in the categories of best gospel album and best contemporary Christian music performance/song.
“I sing to the Lord…I do what the Lord tells me to do,” Storm says in the clip as she backs out of the plane’s aisle.
Representatives from Delta Air Lines contacted the 36-year-old singer to discuss the incident.
In this way, the artist said that she did not want the employee to be “reprimanded” or even fired because of the argument, but rather that everyone treated each other with respect.
In fact, the comments on the networks came immediately and many criticized Bobbi Storm because it was not the right setting to start singing; while others assured that the assistant did not act optimally in this situation.
“Honestly I would hate for you to do that hahaha… I need peace and quiet on the plane. But congratulations,” said one user on TikTok.
