Interview: Tracy Chapman

Tracy Chapman lives a private life out of the spotlight. But in this video she discusses her long and successful music career.


Jennifer Knapp on Faith, Sexuality, and Music

In the late 1990s, Jennifer Knapp became a Christian music sensation. A brand new Christian, having converted in college, she had a fresh, edgy style to her music. For the next decade she toured before suddenly disappearing from the scene. Burned out by the Christian music industry and coming to terms with her sexuality, she and her partner lived in Australia for several years before she finally returned to the US to resume singing and songwriting. This time as an openly gay Christian. Below she gives a TEDx talk.
