You Can Lean on Me…Kirk Franklin R. Kelly, Bono, Mary J.Blige, Crystal Lewis

Remember Kirk Franklin’s Popular World song “Lean on Me”. There was R. Kelly, Mary J. Blige, Bono and Crystal Lewis and several other stars whose voices we leaned on in the time of need. Darlene McCoy has put a spin on this song and its good people who can sang vs those who struggle with a note.

Darlene McCoy does it again with a Parody of Kirk Franklin’s “Lean on Me”

Darlene McCoy is becoming the Queen of Parody. More like the female opponent of Weird Al Yankovich. National Recording Artist & Radio Personality of Atlanta’s Praise 102.5, this Sunday Diva is busy at making people laugh. She’s put out parodies on..well..most of the Top Gospel Artists like Tamela Mann, Kirk Franklin, Donald Lawrence, Hezekiah Walker, James Fortune, Yolanda Adams and Rev. Paul Jones.
