Known as: A singer
Then: A reverend
Al Green was one of the most popular motown and R&B singers of the 1970s (and is still popular today for his vocal talents), but in October 1974 he suffered a tragedy that would steer his life in new directions. Mary Woodson White, his girlfriend whom he refused to marry, threw a pan of boiling grits across Green causing third-degree burns across his body. She then committed suicide.
It was a wake-up call for the singer, who turned heavily to religion. He became an ordained pastor of the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Memphis in 1976, taking the gospel music to a whole new level. The fully-fledged reverend has since won eight Grammys for his gospel work with albums such as 'The Lord Will Make a Way', I'll Rise Again' and 'He Is The Light'.
