Holliday first became famous as an award-winning Tony member in the original cast of Dreamgirls Broadway. Her rendition of “And I’m Telling You” is now legendary.
She attended the middle stage in Ebenezer to honor Lewis with the anthem: “Only what you do for Christ will last.”
“Perhaps you are looking for earthly strength and glory. And the world could be amazed by its big name, “she sang. “Soon the glory of this life will be a thing of the past. But only what you do for Christ will last. ”
Holliday was not the only singer to relocate those who attended the funeral.
Famous gospel singers Marvin Winans and his brother BeBe Winans gave an exciting performance of “Good Problem”.
Marvin Winans shared that he, Bebe and their sister CeCe Winans sang for Lewis in the last days of his life.
He and his brother then led those who had gathered to perform one of the songs they sang for Lewis: “We will overcome.”
