Shirley Caesar and CeCe Winans, both award-winning gospel singers with distinctly anointed voices and beautiful smiles, have fallen victim to a huge Grammy Awards flub.

During the pre-edited Lifetime Achievement Awards segment, which aired during the live televised event, Winans was mistaken for Caesar in the video montage—a huge blunder the “Alabaster Box” singer is taking in stride.

“You can’t mistake Shirley Caesar’s beauty or voice!” tweeted Winans, 52, paying homage to the legendary Caesar, 78, who received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys this year.

Unfortunately, her shining moment was overshadowed by the poorly edited visual tribute, which, also spelled the honoree’s  last name wrong—mistakenly typing out Caeser instead of Caesar.

Many Internet users and fans of gospel music blasted the Recording Academy for both errors.

But the always classy and sweet 10-time Grammy-winning Winans, whose latest album Let Them Fall In Love just debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart, is spreading positivity by taking this opportunity to pour love on Caesar.
