Sly James pipes up with ‘Amazing Grace’ after losing World Series wager

From Twitter

Kansas City Mayor Sly James made good this weekend on a World Series bet with San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee. James sang “Amazing Grace” at Reverend Cecil Williams Glide Memorial Church. James was in San Fran for the U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting.

James spoke first and mentioned the tragedy in South Carolina — criticizing the use of the Confederate flag in that state.

Does a pretty good job with the choir, too. Mobile app users, tap here to see the video.


So Mayor James bet San Fran Mayor Lee that if the Giants won the World Series Mayor James would sing during a San Fran church service. Mayor James made good on that bet yesterday morning at Reverand Cecil Williams Glide Memorial Church. For those who don't know, be prepared to be surprised - my Mayor can sang!
