The Journey keyboardist and guitarist who co-wrote “Don’t Stop Believin’” now is embracing Christian music with open arms.
Jonathan Cain will release his solo Christian album, “What God Wants to Hear,” Oct. 21 on Identity Records.
“It’s my spiritual journey put into music,” Cain said in a video posted on his website.
Cain’s return to faith came after meeting his wife Paula White, the senior pastor of New Destiny Christian Center in Orlando and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s most prominent spiritual advisor.
As a child growing up in Chicago, Cain wanted to be a priest.
He was a third-grader at Our Lady of the Angels School when the historic 1958 fire swept through the building, according to the press release. The fire sent children leaping from fifth-story windows and killed 92 students and three nuns. In its aftermath, Cain turned away from his childhood faith.
Cain joined Journey as its keyboardist and rhythm guitarist in 1980 and still tours with the band. He not only co-wrote “Don’t Stop Believin,’” the most downloaded catalog track in iTunes history, but also wrote or co-wrote the band’s hits “Faithfully,” “Who’s Crying Now,” and “Open Arms.”
