Rock From On High: 12 Music Legends Who Found Jesus

It may have been called “the Devil’s music” when it first burst onto the scene back in the 1950s, but these days many of the greatest rock heroes follow the word of the Lord!  After achieving their dreams of becoming rich and famous, some stars have found their lives in the music biz spiritually empty. That’s when they turned to the Christian faith for enlightenment and peace. But that doesn’t mean they can’t still funk out with the best of ’em! Well ok, sometimes it does…

Some, like Reverend Al Green and Iron Maiden’s Nicko McBrain, have been born again with dramatic religious awakenings. Others like Ringo Starr, Alice Cooper and Rick Derringer embraced their face more gradually over the years. In honor of  the Easter holiday, we’ve decided to pay tribute to a dozen music greats who embraced Christianity later in life. Hallelujah!
