Gospel singer almost booted off Delta flight for singing new single


Thanks for contacting us. We’ve received your submission.

A Grammy-nominated gospel singer was nearly booted off a Delta flight when she refused to stop performing her new single – which she insisted was just her “doing what the Lord is telling me to do.”

Detroit-born Bobbi Storm, 36, a featured vocalist in the 2024 Grammy-nominated album, “The Maverick Way” by the Christian group Maverick City Music, shared a video of her attempt to sing on the plane.

The Instagram clip shows her walking up the aisle and telling passengers that she is “charting right now on the Billboards” as a flight attendant asks he her to “sit down and be quiet.”

Storm replies that “the seatbelt sign is off so it’s not a disturbance.”

After sitting down, she announces: “I just found out I’m up for two Grammys. My very first time, you guys.

“I sing for the Lord and my song is out on all platforms and is called ‘We Can’t Forget Him.’

“I wanna share this with you, guys,” Storm adds to a smattering of applause.

The crew member appears unimpressed and tells her to be quiet, but she claims the other passengers are “enjoying it.”

“Well, I’m not enjoying it. I’m asking you can you please be quiet?” the frustrated-sounding crew member shoots back.

“Am I gonna go to jail if I don’t?” Storm asks him, to which he asks her if she is just “willing and able to be quiet right now.”

“I’m doing what the Lord is telling me to do,” she answers.At that, the staffer tells her he is “your flight leader,” saying: “I need you to follow my instruction. My instructions are for you to answer my question. Are you able to be quiet right now?”

“Am I gonna go to jail if I don’t?” Storm asks him, to which he asks her if she is just “willing and able to be quiet right now.”

Storm then turns to her captive audience and asks: “What do you think.”

After no one voices support, the flight attendant informs her: “OK, if you’re not able to follow my instruction, you will not be taking this flight.”

She reluctantly gives in and says: “If that’s the case, then that’s fine. If you’re the person in charge of it all, then that’s fine.”

But when the employee walks away, Storm turns back to the passenger and in a hushed tone says: ”I’ll sing it on a low for y’all in the back, if that’s OK. The song is called “We Can’t Forget Him.’

“I don’t know the issue. No one else has ever had an issue,” she adds about the crew member.

Storm then begins to sing while people around her awkwardly glance away from the impromptu performance.

In another video, Storm later claimed that Delta reached out to apologize.
