Jennifer Knapp is launching a new album. That's news but there is something bigger about her in the news than the new album, it's about her "coming out" as gay. Here is a little bit about this issue from truthwinsout.org:
Jennifer Knapp is not only coming out with a new album, she is also “coming out,” a term the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter considers “very bizarre” as she nervously relaunches her career.
The 36-year-old Kansas native, who dated men during her college days, is braced for a backlash from religious fans who faithfully shot down whispered rumors about her sexuality over the years. On the other hand, she said in a recent interview with Reuters, “I’m definitely getting a lot more friendly winks from the girls (at her concerts) than I have in the past!”
No other singer of Knapp’s renown in the Christian music genre is openly gay.
Here is a video of Knapp's new record Letting Go, this will be out in May 11th:
