Katy Perry's parents have asked their church congregants to pray for their daughter. The singer with Christian roots found support in her parents when they spoke about her recently at the Church of Grace in Yorba Linda, California, Radar Online reported.
Keith and Mary Hudson reportedly told fellow church members that they have not given up on their daughter.
"I want you to pray for my daughter," Keith said.
"Don't judge her, pray for her. She's going to be singing 'Rise' for the Olympics this year. We're very proud of it and her."
Perry's parents had earlier being critical toward her for songs like "I kissed a girl" but lauded her for the inspirational "Rise".
Performing controversial music is opposed by some of the Christian community, but Katy clearly has her parents' support, even crediting the Christian church for helping discover the musician within her.
When the pair were questioned about attending music awards with their daughter despite not agreeing to all of her music, Keith explains that Jesus would have done the same thing in this situation.
"Where do you think Jesus would go? A lot of them in the industry have walked with the Lord or grew up in church," he reportedly told those listening at the church.
"If you are a parent who agrees with everything your son or daughter does, stand up, we'll shoot you, get rid of you now because you been walking in a lie," said Keith.
Even though the 31-year-old singer is not a practicing Christian anymore, she remains very close to her parents.
