He continued, â€œAnd from a moral standpoint, I was taught morality through the Black Southern Christian Church, which gave us the civil rights movement, the abolitionist movement, which gave us some of the most beautiful music ever. And I feel like Iâ€™m honoring that and I finally figured out my place. It is my submission to God, like, â€˜Okay, you got me.â€™â€
