Country music performer Jake Owen recently released a cover of the 1998 Cher’s song “Believe” and dedicated it to the LGBTQ community. And when one homophobic fan responded with negativity, he had an excellent and compassionate response.
In an Instagram post with a video clip of his Cher cover, Owen wrote:
I believe #loveislove
Some of my closest friends and coworkers, are part of the #lgbt community and I couldn’t be more happy for the progress they have made. I’m inspired by people loving people no matter who you are. I BELIEVE the world needs more love. No matter where it comes from.
So with that said, I googled “gayest” songs of all time and the boys and I decided to put our country spin on Cher’s “Believe.” Hope you dig. I plan on releasing all of these backstage random songs we’ve created very very soon. Stay tuned friends, and most importantly, love everyone.
