There’s no question where Katy Perry gets her enthusiasm and ability to move crowds — it’s from her father.
Keith Hudson, a preacher for 39 years, said his daughter has been singing since she was born.
“Well, it`s great,” Hudson said. “A father always wants the success of their children. You know, always. It`s great, but it has it`s ups and downs.”
On Sunday for Father’s Day, Hudson got to share his experience as a the father of a celebrity with Hope C-3 Church in Colleyville, Texas “When we go a lot of places, we have the opportunity to meet a lot of guarded and gated people, high fashion people, singers, entertainers,” Hudson said. “A lot of people look at us and say, you`re ministers. And, it gives us an opportunity to share the love of Jesus.”
Perry actually began her music career as a gospel singer under the name “Katy Hudson.”
She later burst onto the pop scene with a new name and a new persona.
“And she`s singing to 20-thousand young people,” Hudson said. “They were pressed against the fence and it was almost like church, they had their hands just like this. And, they were singing every one of her songs and all the words. And, they were pressing forth. The Lord said to me, Son, they want to be loved and they want to worship. But, they`re loving and worshiping the wrong thing.”
Although Perry’s style has changed, her father said there’s no job more important than loving your child, no matter how they live their life.
“I love her. She’s my daughter. We have a great relationship. Love will always win out. You don`t have to preach to them or give them scripture or get on them for things they do. Just love on them and let God do the work.”
