Joan Osborne: Finding a Spiritual Space in an Ordinary World
Interview by Dena Ross
Unless you're a dedicated fan, you probably know Joan Osborne's radio-friendly 1995 hit, "One of Us" more than you know her name or face. The song, which questions how we think about and relate to God, has lyrics like, "What if God was one of us/ Just a slob like one of us." Now do you remember?
The Grammy-nominated artist, now out with a new album, "Little Wild One," recently spoke to Beliefnet about how her spiritual upbringing shaped her current spiritual life, how she nurtures her daughter's spirituality, and whether or not she now hates the song that made her famous.
