Sometimes during ice breakers the question comes up “Name a famous person you met.” I always answer “Salt-N-Pepa”!

I think it was the summer of 93 and I was on the shuttle from Washington to New York. On the plane I noticed Salt-N-Pepa and their entourage. When the flight was over I got up and said “Hi Salt-N-Pepa. I really enjoy your music.” Salt-N-Pepa said thank you very nicely, I think in concert, and I remember Salt being especially gracious.

Now this morning I read on Christianity Today’s website this article about Salt including her incredible reconciliation with the father of her daughter.

Pushed to the edge, ‘Salt’ of Salt-N-Pepa turned to Jesus; now the hip-hop duo is reconciling on VH1.

Immersing herself in a church, she sought healing for her underlying wounds. She worked on forgiving her father, whom she describes as a great man weighed down by alcohol. She reconciled with Gavin Wray, her daughter’s father, and the couple married, had a son, and settled in New York.

This explains to me Salt’s powerful words about Jesus in Kirk Franklin’s Stomp.
