Singer-songwriter Demi Lovato gets baptized in the same river Jesus was baptized during her visit to Israel.
Demetria Devonne Lovato (popularly known as Demi Lovato) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress from Los Angeles, California. The pop artist was raised as a Christian with Jewish ancestors, making her connection with Israel very strong.
Visit to Israel
Recently, Demi paid a visit to Israel and celebrated it by being baptized in River Jordan, the same river where Jesus was baptized. The award-winning artist posted on her Instagram about the memorable event.
“I am an American singer. I was raised Christian and have Jewish ancestors. When I was offered an amazing opportunity to visit the places I’d read about in the Bible growing up, I said yes,” Demi wrote in an Instagram post.
In July, Demi celebrated a year of sobriety after a nearly fatal drug overdose. Being baptized in the Jordan River gave Demi a feeling of renewal and a sense of spiritual connection to God.
There is something absolutely magical about Israel. I’ve never felt such a sense of spirituality or connection to God…something I’ve been missing for a few years now. Spirituality is so important to me…to be baptized in the Jordan River – the same place Jesus was baptized – I’ve never felt more renewed in my life,” she added.
“God-sized hole” in her heart
During her visit to Israel, she also visited the Western Wall, Yad Vashem, and the holocaust memorial. God also filled her “God-sized hole” in her heart during this memorable trip.
“This trip has been so important for my well-being, my heart, and my soul,” she said. “I’m grateful for the memories made and the opportunity to be able to fill the God-sized hole in my heart. Thank you for having me, Israel.”
