KORN GUITARIST EXPLAINS HIS INVOLVEMENT WITH FAITH-BASED DOCUMENTARY

Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch spoke with Variety about his involvement with the film Holy Ghost, a faith-based documentary that sets out to prove that the Holy Spirit is real. Welch, a born-again Christian, explained, "Holy Ghost is about people inviting God into their heart and life and going out into world and not staying in church judging people and how they live and saying 'prepare for hell.' We want to show people the real Christ."

Welch added, "It's like I've been shown where to get a billion dollars and it's like I can share all the money with everybody else. Celebrities are given a platform and we've got to use it for something, because we're all going to be accountable one day, so it's important to use it wisely."

Welch will introduce Holy Ghost at a live, digital "world premiere experience" through which anyone in the world can see the film and the event free of charge.

The event will take place this Saturday (September 6th) at the Redding Civic Auditorium in Redding, California. Welch will perform live as part of the program.

Welch said, "Christians, unfortunately, have been given a bad rap. I'm excited for real people to be able to talk about faith and not scare people away from it. It's all about love and meeting God and having our eyes opened."

Welch left Korn in 2005, got sober and embraced Christianity.

He pursued a solo career for several years before rejoining Korn in 2013 and recording his first album with them in 10 years, The Paradigm Shift.
