Prince has revealed that he has knocked on people's doors to tell them about God.
In a rare interview with British tabloid the Daily Mirror, the "Purple Rain" rocker says that he became a Jehovah's Witness after the death of his young son and of his parents in 2001. He said of his choice of religion: "Sometimes people act surprised, but mostly they are really cool about it. There is an incredible peace in my life now, and I'm trying to share it with people."
Prince also explained that he was mentored by Sly and The Family Stone's Larry Graham, who told the newspaper, "Prince is a spiritual man. Sometimes we study for hours - six, seven, eight hours a day. We sit down and get into the scriptures."
Prince's latest album, 20Ten, is being distributed for free in the Daily Mirror this week.
