Gospel singer, Kim Burrell's radio show has been canceled following her church sermon in which she called homosexuality 'perverted' and a 'sin'.

Texas Southern University announced on Wednesday that Burrell's Bridging the Gap would no longer be airing on its airwaves. 

Burrell's show on KTSU-FM 90.9 began nearly seven months ago in June.

'The Kim Burrell show is no longer airing as part of KTSU Radio programming,' TSU said in a statement.

Burrell, 44, was also dropped from the Ellen DeGeneres show on January 3.

DeGeneres, who is gay and a big supporter of the LGBT community, made the announcement on Twitter when she tweeted: 'For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show.'

In defense of her comments, Burrell said she will 'make no excuses or apologies' about the sermon she gave at the church in Houston, Texas. 

The singer also insisted she never said the phrase 'LGBT' in the sermon, 'I said S-I-N', she added.

'I know that people are going to be mad. To every person that is dealing with the homosexual spirit, that has it, I love you because God loves you. But God hates the sin in you and me, anything that is against the nature of God.'
