Adrienne Bailon does not subscribe to the notion of being a stereotypical Christian, but the triple threat holds her relationship with God responsible for her romantic life, the opportunity to co-host "The Real" talk show and surviving in a fickle entertainment business.
Bailon, the 30-year-old singer-songwriter, actress and dancer, broke into the music industry at the tender age of 15, when she was discovered in a church choir and chosen to join Latin singer Ricky Martin on tour. Since then, she has continued to evolve in the entertainment industry while singing for the R&B group 3LW, being a part of Disney Channel productions such as "The Cheetah Girls" before appearing in movies like "Coach Carter" and "I'm In Love With a Church Girl."
While Bailon has been featured in her share of films on the big and small screens, she now serves as a co-host of the new daytime talk show "The Real" which makes its debut Sept. 15. The entertainer insists she never expected to be a talk show host, but told The Christian Post why she decided to utilize the platform. more >>

Rapper and outspoken Christian Lecrae recently spoke to CP Voice about how he juggles the responsibility of fathering three children with a career on the road as a full-time artist.
"You have to prioritize and you have to realize that family is a priority and that it comes before [your career]," he said. "The world can get another artist, but my kids can't get another father. I have to be consistent and present for them and make sure that they don't feel like they're playing second tier to anything else that I have going on other than their mother who comes number one."
Lecrae also discussed a slew of other topics during the show including the possibility of his fans worshipping him as an idol and if he has the ability to prevent that. more >>
