In 2006 or 2007, when Soul Check TV was online only before it went on television, we were in talks to interview the Jonas Brothers for Soul Check TV.
The Jonas Brothers had a new group named “Sons of Jonas.”
My family and I were living in Florida at the time and were considering traveling to GMA week in Nashville, TN, to film interviews for Soul Check TV.
I found out there was a new Christian group of three Christian teenage brothers called “Sons of the Jonas” who would be there and available for interview. I thought this would be great for Soul Check TV’s audience – a group of three Christian teenage brothers to have on the show to share their music and faith!
So I made contact with their contact and we were in talks about an interview for Soul Check TV.
But, my family and I decided not to make the drive from FL to TN. So we didn’t end up going…
Years later I saw the Jonas Brothers rise in popularity on television and also in concert at the Staples Center in L.A. Also saw Nick’s solo tour in Denver. My Mom encouraged me to ask Nick for an interview for Soul Check TV – but I didn’t. After the concert, we did see that Nick did an on-camera interview with a girl at the same event we went to, so maybe he would have said yes? Later on in a documentary the Jonas Brothers said during that time they would say “yes” to every interview.
If I were to interview Nick and Joe today, I would ask them why they have strayed from faith in Jesus Christ? Had they ever truly given their lives to Christ? And remind them of Matthew 16:26, “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?”
The best thing parents can give their children is not to help their children become big stars, but to be true followers of Christ. What matters and lasts for eternity.
