Pastor Shirley Caesar has responded to the viral craze of a remix to her hit gospel performance of “Hold My Mule” in the best way possible. Everyone from Chris Brown to Ace Hood is rapping or dancing along to the #UNameItChallenge, and we’re loving it!

During an exclusive radio interview on The Willie Moore Jr. Show, a noted Gospel radio show, Pastor Caesar had this to say:

I was out in the middle of the ocean, and one of the members from my church showed it to me,” she said. “I was so shocked to see them dancing and boogying… the Lord is so good to me… to come home and millions are listening to the song…

In case you’re not familiar with Pastor Caesar‘s work, “Hold My Mule,” is more of a sermon and an example of her preaching style, rather than a song. Although we’ve been sharing the video in the spirit of Thanksgiving, the sermon is really about how God will provide.

Shout out to @iComplexity who made the remix!

The sermon in full is available below, along with some of our favorite remixes for your enjoyment.
