Singer and recent newly-wed, Faith Evans, performed an absolutely beautiful rendition the classic gospel hymn, “His Eye is on the Sparrow” during Kim Porter‘s funeral. Interestingly, she sang the song before to honor another member of Diddy‘s family.
TMZ caught up with Faith on Sunday at LAX as she returned from Kim’s funeral service in Georgia and asked how she was holding up. It was obvious she was still in mourning, but she says she’s alright in the wake of her emotional performance of the song at the ceremony.
When asked why she chose “His Eye is On the Sparrow” to sing, Faith says she went with something she’d previously performed at Diddy’s grandmother’s funeral back in the ’90s. She also says it’s a tune she’d sing to record label execs back in the day … at Puff’s request.
Most importantly, Faith gives us an idea of how Kim left her mark on the world and why so many people were touched by her passing.
Kim Porter died on November 15 in her Toluca Lake, California, home. She would have been 48 on December 15. Her cause of death has not been confirmed, but she was reportedly receiving treatment for pneumonia and went into cardiac arrest.
