Frontman for The Killers Promotes Mormons
Brandon Flowers says he "still has a fire burning" for his LDS background and faith
With Mitt Romney and discussion of Mormons in the headlines, the LDS church has recruited an interesting choice for an ad campaign to "educate the public" about its beliefs: Brandon Flowers, lead singer of the rock band The Killers.
In a 4-minute video, Flowers discusses his faith and his family; it even includes pictures of the singer playing with his infant son. It's part of a larger publicity campaign to make Mormonism look "hip" to a younger generation. Flowers looks into the camera and says, "I'm a father, I'm a husband, and I'm a Mormon."
