Lecrae says Katy Perry and her songwriting team took his 2008 song “Joyful Noise,” added some “witchcraft, paganism, black magic, and Illuminati imagery,” and the song became “Dark Horse.”
Now we Christians could get upset by this, but I tell you, “don’t”. I think it’s great they are suing her, because it made headline news! Millions of fans and regular people will see this and they may want to go and hear the original music “Joyful Noise”. So while listen to “Joyful Noise,” may God open their eyes of their heart. We need to pray that God finds these peoples’ hearts in the mist. May they truly repent of their sins and turn to Jesus alone. Amen.
