Not that I’d ever watch anything so frivolous — or, you know, involving instrumental music 🙄 — but it’s fascinating that MTV has learned (and reported!) that six of the remaining contestants either lead worship or otherwise participate in Christian music.
According to Brokaw’s research, at least six of the remaining top 11 contenders have ties to the church. Among them are Gokey, who she said ran two services in two different cities every Sunday for Faith Builders International until his wife’s death; worship leaders Sarver and Allen; gospel-quartet member and churchgoer MacIntrye; Giraud, who has released two Christian CDs; and Rounds, who has said she “grew up in church.”
So I knew there was a reason I was pulling for Danny — that is, I would be if I were to watch such a thing. 😀
