Christian Rockers A Hit With Muslims

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It may seem surprising, but Muslims love Christian rock music.

Rick Heil is the frontman of SONICFLOOd, a popular Christian rock band that has traveled the world singing about God’s glory.

A few years ago, the band played at a bar in the Muslim territory of Istanbul, Turkey, and had patrons singing along and raising beer mugs to their music despite the city’s Muslim roots.

Heil believes their brand of rock transcends cultures and doesn’t want to be pigeonholed into solely the Christian genre.

He assures that besides their Lord-centric lyrics, SONICFLOOd is a real rockband with roadies, groupies, and the occasional jailhouse concert.

They once played at a high-security prison in the Bahamas where they ended up hanging out with the prisoners afterwards.

Though they live like rockstars, Heil assures that they exist to praise God, who he believes would approve of their musical stylings.

SONICFLOOd’s eighth album, A Heart Like Yours, is out now.
