NASHVILLE (BP) -- A jury unanimously ruled on Monday (July 29) that Katy Perry's 2013 hit song "Dark Horse" improperly copied from a 2009 Christian rap song from a musical artist known as "Flame," according to media reports.
The case -- originally filed in 2014 by rapper Marcus Gray (under the stage name 'Flame') and his two co-authors -- involves the song titled "Joyful Noise," which was released in 2009, according to Associated Press. The song also features a verse by Christian rap artist Lecrae.
Flame is a graduate of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary's undergraduate Boyce College and also took classes at the seminary, according to a Baptist Press report. Read More
