Kelly Khumalo is the latest celebrity to share her thoughts on the global pandemic and about how to deal with the Covid-19 crisis.
The famous singer posted footage of herself on social media where she sang and spoke directly to the camera. Kelly talked at length about how she truly believed that the only way through the current pandemic would be prayer.
The songstress said that she was sure she would be criticised but that she knew that divine intervention was required and urged her followers to seek it. She also added a biblical reference in her caption, 2 Chronicles 7:14, which speaks about the divine forgiving sin and healing land.
In the video clip, Kelly can be heard saying:
“Beloveds, our people are dying ... Yes, we have to social distance, keep our masks on, and I’m sure with the alcohol ban things are going to go down. But I don’t hear a lot of government officials calling us to prayer. I feel that we need God more than ever at this point in time.”
Kelly spoke about how she truly believed that she knew the only way forward would be prayer and continued by saying:
“Again I know a lot of you will certify me as a crazy person. I need to ask you guys to call on the Lord because no scientist is going to create a miracle at this point. We need God Himself.”
Kelly's fans all supported her and she limited comments on the post. Her followers mostly responded with emojis and an "Amen".
