Ex-Busted singer Charlie Simpson talks about his new-found faith

THE NEW handbag-sized magazine aimed at teenage girls, Caris, launched at the Greenbelt Festival, features an exclusive interview with Charlie Simpson, the former lead singer of hitmaking band Busted. In the interview Simpson spoke about how he had recently gone on an Alpha course. He said, "It was brilliant. I really enjoyed it. I definitely have a faith and firmly believe in the Christian faith." Simpson now fronts the band Fightstar, who will soon be releasing their second album 'One Day Son, This Will All Be Yours'. He told Caris about how his faith was influencing his songwriting, "On a few of the songs on the new album there are a few references. It is subconsciously there in what I'm trying to say. The album has much more relationship-based stuff, but there are moments when I talk about it." CR

Our Church uses the Alpha course. I am glad to hear it is being effective. And God bless Charlie Simpson. Keep the Faith. God does want him blessed and to be a blessing.
