Since going public, Shafer, who is a professional gospel singer and Yawn have been in hot demand. When Yawn did press for Below Deck Med, she was endlessly questioned about her newfound love. Now the couple reveals they are embarking upon what seems to be Shafer’s first big public singing engagement since the couple’s official relationship announcement. And the gig couldn’t be more perfect.

A gospel singer is who no longer welcome

When Shafter spoke with Showbiz Cheat Sheet, she shared that she is no longer welcome in some religious institutions because she is in a relationship with a woman. “It’s looked against it, loving the same sex,” Shafer said. “I think you can’t help who you fall in love with.”

Shafer recently tweeted more about her stance on love. “I have loved #men & I have loved #women & I don’t have a label. I don’t want to be in some club. I want to be just another #humanbeing walking the planet; all I want to do is #love & be loved.”

Since her singing career was rooted in religious houses, Shafer is now pivoting to bringing her talents to new venues. She recently posted to Instagram, “You get one life to live… so Live it with kindness, class, love, passion, respect, prayers and happiness.❤️ when they go low, you go high.”

So she’s performing at this thrilling event
