27 Famous Jehovah's Witnesses

This list of famous Jehovah's Witnesses is sorted by fame and popularity. Jehovah's Witness is a Christian religion that prefers to use their own translation of the Bible entitled The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures. They distribute literature door-to-door and they do not celebrate birthdays or holidays. Jehovah Witnesses also refuse blood transfusions, and they will not serve in the military.

Who is the most famous celebrity Jehovah's Witness? Michael Jackson tops our list. The Jackson family matriarch Katherine is a practicing Jehovah's witness, and she raised all of her children in the religion. Most of the Jacksons are no longer practicing, but Katherine has attempted to raise Michael Jackson's children as Jehovahs Witnesses. Recently, it was reported that Paris and Prince Michael Jackson told their grandmother that they would no longer pass out literature or go door-to-door to raise money for the religion.

“Purple Rain” musician Prince became a Jehovah's Witness in 2001, after his mother's death. Family friend and fellow Jehovah's Witness Larry Graham was a big influence on Prince during this time. It has been reported that Prince needs hip surgery, but refuses the treatment because his religion prevents him from accepting the supplemental blood needed to complete the procedure.
