According to Liberty Counsel officials, assistant principal Montyne Barbee told James on Tuesday to perform a non-religious song. School officials could not be reached Friday.
Kenyetta Whipper, James' mother, contacted Liberty Counsel and met with Barbee. Liberty Counsel officials said they also sent a letter to the school's principal explaining that schools "cannot censor our religious speech" in events like a talent show for which students choose their own material to perform.
