Holliday rose to fame for being a member of the Tony Award for the original Broadway cast of “Dreamgirls.” His narration of “I I I Tell Tell You” is now legendary.
He starred in Ebenezer to pay tribute to Lewis with the anthem, “Just What You Do for Christ Will Last.”
“Perhaps you seek earthly power and fame / And the world may be impressed by your great name,” he sang. “Soon the glories of this life will soon be gone. But only what you do for Christ will last.”
He also performed “Take My Hand, Precious Lord.”
Holliday was not the only singer to move attendees to the funeral.
Famous gospel singers Marvin Winans and his brother BeBe Winans gave a rendition of “Good Trouble.”
Marvin Winans shared that he, Bebe and his sister CeCe Winans sang for Lewis in the last days of his life.
He and his brother led the reunion in a performance of one of the songs they sang for Lewis: “We Shall Overcome.”
