Rap star Snoop Dogg sings 'I'd rather have Jesus'
US rap star Snoop Dogg has posted a video on social media site of him singing gospel song 'I'd rather have Jesus'.
The song was made famous during Billy Graham's evangelistic rallies by worship leader George Beverly Shae.
Snoop Dogg has given varying responses on the issue of religion when quizzed about his own faith.
He was brought up as a Christian but in a 2003 interview with Associated Press, he said: "As a kid, I was pushed into the Baptist church, taught that way.
"As an adult, I was able to seek out information on my own to find out that the Muslim religion, Rastafari, Baptist, Christian - that they all the same.
"They all God-fearing people and love is love. ... It's more based on life and a way of life and liberty as opposed to religion. Because religion is so false, because it's so past tense and written by someone who is not here. I feel like religion should be based on the way you live and the way you treat yourself and treat others.
In an interview with HHDX he explained how he doesn't like to push his faith onto anyone. He said: "It's not even about being bashful or shy. I've never been offensive with [my beliefs]. I've always been the one to let people know slowly but surely who I am. I don't force it on you or try to make you become what I am".
