Rocker JOHN MELLENCAMP turned a recent recording session into a baptism ceremony after telling vergers at the church studio he had never been baptised.
The Jack & Diane singer has been recording an album on tour, turning famous "rooms" into impromptu studios - and when he stopped off at the First African Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia he decided it was time to get baptised.
He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I recorded right on the pulpit, and underneath me was the baptismal.
"On one song, I sing, 'I ain't been baptised.' Someone from the church said, 'We'll baptise you.'"
Mellencamp agreed, adding, "There were attendants taking care of me, dressing me... I felt downright uplifted for a few hours."
