Kandi Burruss has presented a controversial dichotomy to spectators who witnessed her release a line of intimate toys before creating her recent gospel song, “Stay Prayed Up.” While Burruss admits she is not a perfect Christian, she opened up to The Christian Post about how her faith helped her overcome her ex-fiancé’s death, find love again and succeed in the music industry for over 20 years.

Burruss, 36, entered the music industry as a teenager in the 90’s R&B quartet Xscape. The singer-songwriter and producer moved on from the group but earned success by co-writing songs for the likes of well-known singers and singing groups like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Faith Evans, Pink, Alicia Keys, TLC, Destiny’s Child, RichGirl, ‘N Sync and Boyz II Men.

Burruss became a cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” in 2009 and recently shared her desire to write a gospel song on the reality television series. After releasing “Stay Prayed Up” featuring pastor and gospel singer Marvin Sapp, she received a great deal of criticism for her intimate bedroom toy line called “Bedroom Kandi” and late-night online show called “Kandi Koated Nights.”

However, Burruss wasn’t surprised that many people chastised her for releasing the record.
