Prince talks openly about his religion to the Daily Mirror. The pop star discusses his belief in angels, his promise to his dying mother, and knocking on doors to save souls.
When quizzed about his faith in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper, he said: “There are good angels and bad angels.”

He explained: “Sometime people act surprised when I’m at their house, but mostly they’re cool about it.”
