Global evangelist and founder of Christ for all Nations (CfaN)...
Jonathan Viera has performed across the globe in a variety of roles and musical styles from Mozart through to John Adams. He's also well known in the Christian community for his Christian and gospel albums. In this interview with Premier's Simon Tuck, Jonathan chats about his upbringing in the Plymouth Brethren, how his faith has developed over time and his recent health struggles. Speaking from experience, he also says many church leaders need to stop worrying about their sermons and start prioritising pastoral care. Reflecting on his long, varied and successful career, he says, "Someone like me doesn't normally end up in opera...I remember standing in Downing Street thinking my father could never have conceived of this". But fame comes and goes, and he says it's something he's learned to hold onto lightly.
