    Bryn Haworth: The guitar virtuoso on his conversion to Christianity

    Bryn Haworth: The guitar virtuoso on his conversion to Christianity

    The legendary guitarist and Christian singer-songwriter Bryn Haworth has released over 20 albums and toured the length and breadth of the UK over the course of his four-decade-long career. In this interview with Premier's Simon Tuck, Bryn tells the story of how he and his wife Sally were saved out of a classic 1960s 'sex, drugs and rock and roll' lifestyle and into what became known as the 'Jesus movement'. He also talks about his prison ministry, how Covid-19 has effected him and perhaps most importantly, what snacks he'd take on a road trip.

    X Factor runner-up Jahmene: Surviving child abuse and meeting a father to the fatherless

    X Factor runner-up Jahmene: Surviving child abuse and meeting a father to the fatherless

    It could be argued X Factor launched his career, but Jahmene doesn't share that perspective. In this in-depth interview with Premier Christianity's Sam Hailes, the singer explains why he wouldn't recommend the show to upcoming singers. He also opens up about the horrific abuse he received as a child, and how God revealed himself in the midst of his pain. He also talks about his determination to stay true to himself - and his faith - even when faced with outside pressures, including that of past record labels he was associated with. Having released his first Gospel EP independently, which includes hit song 'Father to the Fatherless', Jahmene is feeling confident in who he is. But citing what he calls the "politricks" inside churches, he believes God is calling him "outside of the church".

    Steve Harvey: One of America's biggest entertainers on his mistakes and God's grace

    Steve Harvey: One of America's biggest entertainers on his mistakes and God's grace

    He might be one of America’s biggest entertainers, but life hasn’t always been rosy for the larger-than-life celebrity. Steve Harvey says his rags to riches story is entirely down to the grace of God. In this exclusive interview with Premier's Muyiwa, Harvey describes quitting his job in pursuit of a career in stand-up comedy as a “leap of faith”. It landed him homeless for three years, living in his car, travelling the length and breadth of the USA searching for gigs. Eventually his big break came. But success is a double-edged sword, and it would take him down a path away from the values of his childhood. It was many years before he rediscovered that the God he'd turned his back on was waiting with open arms.

    Leroy Logan: My life as a black police officer in London

    Leroy Logan: My life as a black police officer in London

    Leroy Logan is a Christian, a black man and a police officer. And he sees no contradiction between any of these aspects of his identity. The former superintendent played a significant role in the Metropolitan police, which he served in for 30 years. He is a former chair of the Black Police Association and was involved in the investigation of the murder of Damilola Taylor. In this interview with Premier Christianity's Sam Hailes, Leroy explains how despite his father being attacked by the police, he was resolute in following his calling. He also reveals how his wife leaving him kickstarted his journey to faith and an experience of being 'born again'. Part of his life story is due to feature in an upcoming BBC One film 'Small Axe' where John Boyega (Star Wars, Pacific Rim, Attack The Block) will play Leroy.
