Majeste Pearson auditioned for the new singing competition “The Four” where she tearfully shared her father Bishop Carlton Pearson’s controversial story.
Pearson hit “The Four” stage hoping to battle one of the four singers selected by the judges in the competition. Before singing on Thursday she shared her background, revealing that her father is the bishop whose theology changed and he started teaching the universalist belief that no one is condemned to Hell.
“My dad was at the height of his career and suddenly he had a shift in his beliefs and decided that there was no Hell and that everybody was going to Heaven,” Pearson says. “The community labeled my father a heretic.”
The young singer explained that her father’s decision caused her to lose friendships she’d had her whole life as members of the church stopped talking to them. They also lost their thriving church, Higher Dimensions Family Church, which at the time was one of Tulsa’s largest congregations with 5,000 members.
“We lost everything. I can’t even imagine all that he had to go through for him to still come home and smile,” Pearson said as she broke down in tears.
“His heart and his determination has always been consistent and that’s what inspires me and I feel like it’s what I have because that’s my dad,” she added.
Pearson then sang her rendition of Adele’s hit song “Someone Like You” and blew the judges away. After getting voted to the next round, she battled singer Carvena Jones and beat her, which secured her seat on the competition until next week’s show.
