The Hillsong Channel is now airing a new six-part series featuring celebrities who talk about their faith and how they’re using it to make a lasting impact on the culture.
Hosted by wardrobe stylist Natalie Manuel Lee, who’s a member of Hillsong Church and sister of popular fashion and sneaker designer Jerry Lorenzo, the series, “Now With Natalie,” shows Lee interviewing Hailey Bieber, Tyson Chandler, Kelly Rowland, Jerry Lorenzo and Elaine Welteroth, among others who speak about their faith.
Lee said she wanted to host the show because she saw the “need for purposeful content.”
Episode one featured supermodel Hailey Bieber, filmmaker Elliot Rausch, and cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Caroline Leaf. Bieber was the main focus of the episode which centered around identity and comparison.
“The guests this season, those are my friends and my family, it’s my community. I’m blessed to have them in my life. Not only do I learn from each and every one of them, but we have these conversations all the time,” Lee told The Christian Post in a recent interview.
“It could be very daunting and scary to really tell your story and really be able to tell the [real] truth,” Lee said, adding that she believed it was imperative to gather her influential friends and family to encourage a generation.
“The greatest way to serve is to tell your story. And for them, I just needed them to tell their story, and be honest, be transparent. I knew that they would have an impact that they probably didn’t even realize how big the impact would be, and it has so far,” she added.
Lee emphasized that everyone she interviews for the series shares something about their faith.
“One-hundred percent, everybody that’s on the show is a believer and that was the point,” she told CP. “I think the common thread from everybody from episode one to episode six, the common thread is their faith.
“It’s that consistent pillar in their life, which is their faith and their relationship with Jesus and their relationship with God. And they’re able to talk about it, they’re able to display it, they’re able to say how it helped them navigate through this industry. So yeah, Kelly Rowland, Tyson Chandler, Angela Davis and then Jerry Lorenzo, they all definitely give it to us about the man above, for sure.”
