Rocker Diamante Shares Her Spiritual Side (Video)
Here at Rocking God’s House, part of our mission — as stated on our homepage — is to have sincere conversations with celebrities in secular culture about spiritual topics. This doesn’t mean that they agree and endorse everything that we believe, nor does it mean that we agree and endorse everything that they believe. We simply want to engage the culture around us, be good listeners, and have earnest discussions about some deeper topics in a respectful, civil way (something that is sorely missing in our culture, especially with the rampant “trolling” online.)
This also means, from time to time, that we interview artists, comedians, and actors who have been involved with projects that contain explicit content. While, as stated above, we don’t endorse the worldview of every person we interview (and they likely don’t endorse ours either), we feel strongly that the Christian community needs to do a better job of engaging culture in earnest conversation and not pushing artists away — even in situations where an artist’s content requires parental guidance. (And, fair warning: the music of Diamante does indeed contain explicit content.)
In our latest chapter of this ongoing quest, I had the chance to interview one of the most popular young secular rock artists (and one of the kindest in-person interviews) on the rock scene today: Diamante (#DIAMANTEband).
Diamante, who is only 18 years old, is taking the secular music industry by storm. She is currently touring in Revolver Magazine’s 2015 “Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock” national tour and promoting her new EP. (One of the tracks off the EP hit #3 on Billboard’s Top 100 in 2014.)
She was one of the most down-to-earth, humble celebrity rock stars that I’ve met, and she opened up about a number of topics ranging from what it’s like to be a female rocker in a male dominated industry to her opinions about religion and spirituality.
