The 18-year-old Polish singer Roksana Węgiel spoke freely about her attitude towards faith and admitted that she regularly goes to church in an interview with the Wp.pl news portal.
The young pop star said she wants to raise awareness about the Catholic Church, “as it can be something that strengthens you.”
“I don’t go there for the priests, but for God. It is faith. Church for me is a community of people connected in their love of God,” she said.
Węgiel stressed that she goes to church “whenever she feels the need,” adding that it is not compulsory. She continued that there are “great Holy Masses, great preaching.”
The Polish singer argued that the stereotype that only “old people” go to church needs to be broken.
“I go to church with my crew; it is very modern, and they are my best homies,” said the young singer.
Roksana Węgiel is a Polish pop singer, TV presenter, and songwriter. She has also produced several songs.
Węgiel has been a part of the music industry since she was a child. She went to music school to learn piano while in elementary school. At the age of eight, she started attending singing lessons, and shortly after she joined the children’s choir at a church.
In 2018, she won the first edition of The Voice Kids TV show and the 16th Junior Eurovision Song Contest. She won the MTV Europe Award for Best Polish Artist in 2019, and in 2021, she proved to be the best in the third edition of Dance Dance Dance show.
