Well here’s one we didn’t see coming… Ann-Margret has a new album called God Is Love: The Gospel Sessions 2 from Greenhaw Records. It features the Preston Hollow Presbyterian Choir from Dallas, Texas, on ten contemporary and traditional Christian and Gospel songs. Wait a minute—Sessions 2 means there was a Sessions 1? Wait another minute—Ann-Margret, the actress, is a singer, doing Christian/Gospel music? This is news to us at Christian Music Daily!
Ann-Margret rose to fame for her starring roles in Bye Bye Birdie, Viva Las Vegas, State Fair, The Cincinnati Kid, Carnal Knowledge and Tommy, with later credits including such hit films as Grumpy Old Men, Any Given Sunday, The Santa Clause 3 and The Break-Up. She has won five Golden Globe Awards and been nominated for two Academy Awards, two GRAMMY® Awards, a Dove Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and six Emmy Awards. In 2010, she won her first Emmy Award for her guest appearance on Law & Order: SVU.
While we here at Christian Music Daily are curious to hear what she sounds like as a Gospel singer, we’re even more curious to know what you think of her CD cover– post your comments– here’s the topic: Is Ann-Margret’s sex kitten pose too hot for a Gospel CD/audience??? Is Ann-Margret too sexy to be singing Gospel music?
