After a seven-year hiatus full of rumor and speculation
, Christian singer-songwriter Jennifer Knapp
has returned to touring and recording. Apparently, some rumors were true
Knapp may not be a household name, but within the genre of Contemporary Christian Music, she's a well-known, respected artist who took the "Lilith Fair" confessional folk-rock style and married it to honest
, soul-searching lyrics
about faith and doubt. In 2004, she took an abrupt leave from recording and performing, citing exhaustion. Less than a year ago, she quietly started a Twitter account
, playing shows and eventually releasing news of her upcoming album.
Reaction to her coming out (especially amongst Evangelicals, who comprised most of her fan base) has been mixed; some positive
, some thoughtful
, and some more predictable reactions
This is not the first time
a high-profile CCM artist has come out of the closet.
