“There is no medical support for that; It’s a conceit, possibly due to the church she attended while she was alive, and the songs might just give people ideas, but there’s no evidence whatsoever. It simply cannot be proven in any way.
“Someone who is dead is dead and has become a corpse; it’s in a morgue, it can’t sing and it can’t move, so it’s a human performance.”
