Prince a devoted Jehovah’s Witness!
African American rock star Prince a devoted Jehovah’s Witness!
It was anounced on “EXTRA” (TV program in the USA) and they said we would soon see a change in his music because he was “marrying his music to his religion.” They said he is now a very devout Jehovah’s Witness.
Prince – Now a Jehovah’s Witness!
African American rock star Prince came into this world as Prince Roger Nelson; he was named for the Prince Roger Trio, a musical aggregation for which his father played. In light of his carefully cultivated public image — the arrogant aloofness, the covey of bodyguards, the overemphasized androgyny — it is sometimes easy to forget that Prince is uncommonly talented; in addition to his singing and composing skills, he is proficient at two dozen musical instruments.
Now the controversial artist has become a Jehovah’s Witness as well, and he’s been at that for a while, “studying” with none other than Larry Graham (Sly & The Family Stone)
We haven’t heard that he is actually baptized by now, or even publishing that he will be in the near future.
Time will tell.
