Charles Mackesy, an artist whose work has been collected by the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Bear Grylls and Sting, says God used art to draw him away from his atheist beliefs.
It began a quarter of a century ago when Makesy was at a Glasteonbury music festival where he first heard the gospel song "O Happy Day." He was so overcome by the song that he, then an atheist, wept and wept.
