Ben Carson Loses Himself In Detroit, Announces Presidential Bid With Gospel Eminem

Ben Carson made an unusual musical choice as he officially announced his presidential bid Monday at the Detroit Music Hall.

To set the scene, Carson had a gospel choir perform an a cappella rendition of "Lose Yourself" by Eminem, who also spent much of his childhood in Detroit. It's quite remarkable. And bizarre.

The choir, Selected of God, first recorded its gospel version of the gritty song in 2011. A representative for Eminem did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
