Rick Astley confirms not participating in Lent again
Despite Rick Astley starting his musical career starting at age of 10 in the local church choir he moved away from participating in Lent which was expressed in his hit number 1 hit single “Never Gonna Give You Up”.
Released in August 1987 the single stayed at number 1 in Britain for 5 weeks and became the year’s highest-selling single. The song was also a worldwide number one hit, topping the charts in 24 other countries, including the US, Australia, and West Germany.
“I think the song captured the heart of the church at that time which was to move away from traditional practices to walking in the freedom of Christ,” said a spokesman.
So dear reader, what are you giving up this Lent or are you standing with Rick and proclaiming the completed work of Christ through “Never Gonna give you up”?
