We all know that Brian “Head” Welch has found God, but now he wants to help others find God too. The first soul Welch wants to save is none other than 50 Cent. On Friday, Welch sent a personal letter to 50, describing it as a letter from “God.” In the letter, Welch wrote: “The Big Guy speaks through me a lot when I write, and I have a song for 50 Cent I wrote in the Holy Land. I feel like it’s a personal letter to 50 from God, so I’m going to give it to him personally and see what his reaction is…if it’s a positive reaction and he’s willing to talk to me, then I’m not gonna release it, but if the reaction is not positive, I’m going to share it with the world.”
Interscope’s publicist said 50 Cent had no comment. On the other hand, lead singer of Korn Jonathan David feels Welch is on a “false crusade,” and doubt his former band mates new found religious beliefs.
Welch is also completing a solo album. Parts of the solo CD can be heard on www.headtochrist.com. Welch is also involved in a Christian themed clothing line with actor Stephen Baldwin.

Justin Timberlake will play Elton John in an upcoming biopic. Justin was handpicked by Sir Elton. Still, Justin was said to be unhappy with the Disney script that glosses over the darker parts of Elton John’s career.
