Well would you look at who it is!

Little Richard made his first television appearance in years on Southern Illinois’ Three Angels Broadcasting Network last month.

The 84-year-old Rock and Roll legend talked to Danny Shelton about his musical influence that spans decades and his love for God that he says, has always been very clear.

“I’ve always talked about Jesus. I’d be screaming and singing…I had a song I’d sing called ‘In The Name.'”

Richard went on to talk about God loving everyone, despite your sexual orientation.

“When I first come in show business they wanted you to look like everybody but yourself. And anybody that comes in show business they gone say you gay or straight…God made men, men and women, women. You’ve got to live the way God wants you to live…he can save you.”
