NEW YORK — Sex, drugs and rock n' roll — or in this case, hip-hop. Those were the topics of a recent discussion that saw actress April L. Hernandez and rappers Andy Mineo and MC Jin join a NYC pastor on a church stage to share how they came to faith in Christ, and maintain their faith as Christian celebrities.
Hernandez, recently interviewed by Breathecast about her new co-hosting gig with bestselling author Eric Metaxas on "100 Huntley Street," said she had a "prophetic" experience under peculiar circumstances while touring to promote her award-winning 2007 film "Freedom Writers." However, she did not become a Christian until much later, after her boyfriend (now her husband) gave his life to Christ.
As for MC Jin, born Jin Au-Yeung, he credited one of his aunts with helping to till his heart as a kid for the eventual work God would do in his life more than a decade later, by signing him up for Vacation Bible School. The rapper, who recently released his Hypocrite EP said, however, the real turning point came after his rising star soon plummeted after he became the first Chinese solo rapper to sign with a major record label (read more about Jin's story: Evolution of Jin: Former Ruff Ryder's Fall to Grace). more >>
