Prince, originally Prince Rogers Nelson and formerly referred to as “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince,” was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In fact, his music and its many imitators is often called “The Minneapolis Sound.”
Prince was raised a Seventh-day Adventist, a small but significant Christian denomination.1
It’s hard to believe that while Prince was coming up, selling millions of records, and singing X-rated lyrics about one-night stands and sexual positions, that he was that devout a Christian. But that all changed when, in 2001, Prince converted to Jehovah’s Witness.2 He has even admitted to proselytizing, that is, knocking on random doors to hand out Watchtower magazine and preach his faith.
