An excited gospel singer was almost escorted off her flight after a Delta Air Lines flight attendant asked her to end her impromptu concert on the plane.
When someone gets a big discount on a trip, they can say they got their trip “for a song.” A gospel singer almost had the opposite experience when she tried to bring her song on a Delta Air Lines flight.
Gospel singer Bobbi Storm posted the incident on his Instagram accountreceiving mixed reactions from those who saw the video.
Singer promotes song on plane, despite flight attendant’s instructions
The incident occurred aboard a Delta flight and was posted to her personal Instagram on Saturday, November 11, 2024. The video begins with Storm speaking to the senior flight attendant, reassuring him that she was heading to his seat and did not create a disturbance. The flight reportedly had to return to the gate due to a mechanical problem and had not yet left the airport. It is not clear on which flight the incident occurred, or where it was departing or to what destination.
She then announced to those around her that she was “singing for the Lord” and was nominated that day for two Grammy Awards. Storm then continues to promote her music to everyone, before the flight attendant asks her, “Will you shut up?”
“Everyone likes it, so why should I keep quiet? » Storm replied.
“I don’t appreciate that, so please shut up,” the flight attendant responded.
The flight attendant goes on to tell Storm that if she is unable to remain quiet, she will not be allowed to stay on the plane. Storm agrees to the terms, but continues to promote his music to everyone around him. Additionally, she begins to sing to those around her despite being ordered not to.
In a defense posted in the comments of his post, Storm states: “I have sung on over 50 flights. There are NO LAWS being broken here. She went on to call out the flight attendant in question, writing, “This flight attendant was really down and didn’t have the authority to do what he was threatening, but I have places to go and I I wasn’t going to lower myself to his level. .”
In a statement to NBC News, a Delta spokesperson said it had been in contact with Storm about its problem with the plane. The outlet also notes that Storm was not individually nominated for a Grammy Award, but that Maverick City Music – who she recorded with – was nominated for the honors.
