Ciara is bringing some joy and inspiration to social media this week, The wife of NFL star Russell Wilson shared a video where she singing uplifting lyrics from the song “In Spite Of Me,” her collaboration with gospel artist Tasha Cobbs Leonard.
The track was released a few days ago. Ciara used the clip to talk about God being great and always being there for her even when she does not really deserve it. Doing a song of that nature is a bit surprising and unexpected for Ciara, but she manages to pull it off.
The mother of three knows that 2020 has been challenging for most of her followers, so being featured on it might be the right move after all.
Ciara doing gospel music was such a shock that some people on social media decided to be mean about it. However, her backers are not sleeping.

A third supporter chimed in: “Y’all better not drag CiCi, we all know sis is not a lead vocalist in these streets.. So let her live 😒.”
This critic still not backing down and hit back with: “Ciara cannot sing but she can put on a show and she has a beautiful soul but singing is not your calling you whisper n everyone.”

Thanks for having me on this song with you @TashaCobbsLeonard #InspiteOfMe
A nuanced observer pointed out: “I will never understand how she made a whole career out of being an artist if everyone hates her vocals/ what she does musically soo much. Guess that’s what happens when your faith is strong and your blessed and highly favored. You make money off of your critics. 🤷♀️”
Ciara has managed to accomplish a lot.
