In the late ‘00s, Marques Houston was one of the hottest R&B singers in the game with hits like “Naked” and “All Because of You.” Now the 34-year-old crooner is a practicing Jehovah’s Witness. No, this is not a joke.
As noted by Essence, it appears that the former Immature singer has found some new religion and spreads “the Word” door-to-door on the weekends. On his Instagram page, Houston regulary posts photos of himself on “field service” passing out Jehovah’s Witness brochures and looking very dapper while doing the Lord’s work.
There’s no word on when Houston converted to JV, but he joins several celebrities who are practicing members including Serena Williams, George Benson and the late music icons Prince and Michael Jackson. The religion is very strict as they preach that Jesus is God’s “only begotten Son” and don’t celebrate holidays, birthdays, donate blood or belive in war.
Honestly, as cool and dapper as Marques Houston looks as a JV, we wouldn’t mind him knocking on our doors, we are just saying. Can you imagine him at your front door, singing you a spiritual message? We think the ladies would appreciate that.
