CNN accidentally tweets about Faith Hill, uses photo of Faith Evans

We were all doing a double take when we read the news that Faith Hill had a new project in the works. Not that we don’t want to hear new music from Hill, but this particular collaboration seemed a little off.

Sure, husband Tim McGraw collaborated with rapper Nelly on "Over and Over" back in 2004, but this just felt a little different.

It’s also a little wrong. If you look at the photo attached to CNN’s tweet, the image is actually of hit R&B singer-songwriter Faith Evans, not Faith Hill.

CNN stepped up and took responsibility for the error later in their timeline by issuing a correction, but not before a few hundred Twitter users caught it, including Faith Hill and Faith Evans.

Hill simply said,"This sounds awesome!"

Faith Evans, who is actually releasing the project, succinctly responded with a pair of left-looking emoji eyes in a tweet, but also shared other humorous tweets, including a photoshopped image of her upcoming album:

She also asked Hill if she was up for a duet:

Maybe we'll get a collaboration between two Faiths soon!
