Prince and the Jehovah’s Witnesses

[Ad] Planning a vacation or trip? Book activities and Skip-The-Line tickets here.

One of the world’s raunchiest rock stars, Prince is in his stacked heels and flamboyant suit strutting from house to house around an ordinary suburban estate.

Flanked by minders, he goes up a garden path, knocks on a door and politely asks the householder: “Would you like to talk about God?”

Prince admits his door-to-door missions as a Jehovah’s Witness raises eyebrows.

Sometimes he tries to escape his fame by going in disguise.

You only have to meet Prince for a few minutes to realise the extent to which God – rather than the colour purple – now influences how he lives.

Much of what he says, as well as his songwriting, revolves around his beliefs these days. Even the mysterious numbers he slots into his material are thought to be coded biblical references.

Incidentally, read what the Watchtower — the organization behind the Jehovah’s Witnesses at your door — had to say about music.
