American Singer and actress Selena Gomez, 26, recently shared about her faith, going to Hillsong Church, as well as looking up to ministry leaders for advice and help in her life.
“Elvis Duran and the Morning Show” interviewed the former Disney star, the third-most-followed user on Instagram, for a little under 20 minutes, and their conversation started and ended with the subject of Hillsong NYC and the lead pastor, Carl Lentz, reported Charisma News.
Duran joked about how the paparazzi “caught” Ms. Gomez leaving church on Sunday—instead of doing something inappropriate.
Selena Gomez is not shy about her Christian faith, and she even told Duran during the interview that she values faith and vulnerability.
“I haven’t really been all over the place lately and that’s kind of intentional. I think it’s important to balance out where I am, and I’ve been doing this for a really long time, and my sanity has meant everything to me, and a lot of that is my faith.” she said.
In recent months, Gomez has revealed more of her spiritual and Christian side by associating with churches and pastors.
And she shared some of her struggle, quoting from a sermon by Pastor Judah Smith who leads City Church in Los Angeles, California.
According to TMZ, Selena was hospitalized in late September “over an alarmingly low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant,” which left her feeling “despondent and emotional.”
Then, just a week later, she was admitted to the hospital again because her white blood cell count levels reportedly hadn’t improved.
The singer is now out of her treatment program and is doing much better.
The bio on her Instagram account says: “With him on my side I’m fearless, afraid of no one and nothing.”
Gomez also put a worship song on her recent album and sang with Hillsong Young & Free at a concert in Los Angeles.
“Tonight is more than a concert,” Gomez told the audience as she took the stage.
“It’s more than Hillsong. It’s more than me coming on stage and singing a song for you. It’s about a relationship that is greater than anything,” she said.
“I wrote this song about the one thing that holds it all together for me even when I can’t bear to do it myself,” she continued. “The song is called, ‘Nobody.'”
