Holiday first rose to fame as a Tony Award-winning member of the original Broadway cast of “Dreamgirls”. His singing of “And I’m Telling You” is now legendary.
She took center stage in Ebenezer to honor Lewis for the hymn, “Only Do You Work for Christ.”
“You can seek worldly power, and fame / and the world may be influenced by your great name,” she sang. “Soon the glories of this life will soon be past / But only what you do for Christ.”
Holliday was not the only singer to move attendees to the funeral.
Famous gospel singer Marvin Vince and his brother Babe Vince gave a great performance of “Good Trouble”.
Marvin Winans shared that he, Babe and his sister CK Winans sang for Lewis in the last days of his life.
He and his brother then sang one of their songs for Lewis: “We Shell Overcome.”
