Helen Shapiro - a class act. Happy Birthday for the 28th.

The sentence about her messianic conversion certainly lacks NPOV

The link to her husband, John Judd, is wrong. It goes to a maker of diesel engines of the same name. Engelsepiet (talk) 18:43, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, so I have removed the link.

The link to the wrong John Judd is there again. There is still no article for Shapiro's husband, only the engineer. So I have removed it and made a comment on the talk page for John Judd the engineer. There probably should be a disambiguation entry, but I don't know how it should be done because there's only one Judd article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.177.60.154 (talk) 08:39, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Her evangelical career[edit]

Ms, Shapiro's biography currently omits what she has been doing for the past quarter-century. Since 1987, she has been working as a gospel singer and evangelist after deciding that Jesus was in fact the Messiah. She didn't actually convert to Christianity: she considers herself a messianic Jew. The only source I have found for this is the autobiography on her own web site, but she clearly is almost as famous for her current religious ministry as for her career 50 years ago as a pre-Beatles British pop star. Before I add a brief mention in the article, I thought I should post something here to see if anyone can fill me on the history of why such a big part of her life is missing?

Sorry -- Messianic Jews not allowed on Wikipedia. I'm sure you understand. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.69.209.76 (talk) 15:31, 12 August 2013 (UTC)
