Default How many Secular Artists are/or have become Christians?

I can only think of a few Secular Artists that have become/or have always been Christians.

BJ Thomas
Tommy James
Ace Freely

I think Van Morrison is, too. I'm not sure.

Know of any more?

How about Actors?

Ok, bad example, but...

I think you mean Ace Frehley, the guy with KISS.

Van Morrison has some very Spiritual songs for sure.

The punk band Dropkick Murpheys. Listen to their version of Amazing Grace sometime if you ever get a chance.

One of the guitarists from Korn has recently been born-again. He left the band and is going to release a Christian album soon.

Someone a lot of you have heard of: Al Green. He basically quit music after he became a Christian.

A guy I really like is the progressive rock guy Neal Morse. He was in Spock's Beard, and had a side project called Transatlantic with Mike Portnoy from Dream Theater and some other guys from The Flower Kings and a guy from Marillion. He quit both bands a few years back to have a solo career, and he's basically doing Christian Prog Rock now, which is a weird idea, because not a lot of people listen to prog rock anyway, much less Christian Prog Rock. I'm not even a Christian, but I love Neal Morse. He's great. Check him out sometime. Check out Spock's Beard and Transatlantic too.
