The #UNameIt challenge has become a surprise hit and has brought the original song “Hold My Mule” by Shirley Caesar to the top of the charts. The song is #1 on the Gospel music streaming chart with over 800,000 streams.
With so many people posting the song, Caesar who wrote the original song and owns the copyright could make somewhere in the neighborhood of $250,000 but the Gospel music legend says that she won’t keep a dime of it!
“We plan to pick various ministries each week to make sure donations are made to feed folks ‘greens, beans, potatoes, tomatoes, lamb, ram—you name it,’ and to help our ministry as well.” she said during an interview on the Wendy Williams show. Caesar also said that she like to donate to St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN and to charities in Haiti, which are helping to rebuild after the devastation of Hurricane Matthew.
