If you watch BET’s “Sunday Best” then you know Adams has perfected the craft of the gentle rejection, something that she says is also necessary for “How Sweet the Sound.”
“I do like I do on “Sunday Best.” Um, that’s not quite what we’re looking for. And do it very nicely. I’ve gotten some horrible tweets and emails. How can you tell those people that they can’t sing? You tell them they caint sing, cause they canint! You’re good for a choir. You’re good to sing behond the pastor when he’s about to open up the doors of the church but not to be out there on your own.”
