Flyleaf singer, former Korn member talk faith in new interview
The Whosoevers comprise a group of influential musicians, artists and athletes dedicated to bringing “hope, life and love” through a worldwide movement based on faith and Christianity. Spearheaded by P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval and Ryan Ries, the group takes their name from the Bible verse John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Sandoval interviewed Korn bass player Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu and former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch last month during the Whosoevers’ “Threat To Formalized Religion…I Am” conference in Diamond Bar, Calif.
“My favorite thing about being a part of the Whosoevers movement is gathering together with a bunch of people who are just as messed up as I am,” Welch said in a release. “One day we will get it right…LOL.” Welch left Korn in 2005 after finding faith in Jesus Christ, and he’s been active with the Whosoevers since the organization’s initiation.
Flyleaf lead singer Lacey Sturm is also a member of the Whosoevers. She says having a faith-based community of supporters in her life is critical. “It’s awesome to be able to sit down with crazy famous rock stars, and find out that they are just ‘whosoevers,’ like me, with miraculous stories, like anyone else who has eyes to see the odds that we’ve all beaten to still be breathing,” she said in an official statement.
