New woman. Demi Lovato revealed in an Instagram post on Tuesday, October 1, that she got baptized in the Jordan River on a spiritual trip to Israel.  

“I am an American singer. I was raised Christian and have Jewish ancestors,” the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer, 27, captioned a photo of her in the Jordan River, which holds significance in both Christianity and Judaism.  

She continued, “When I was offered an amazing opportunity to visit the places I’d read about in the Bible growing up, I said yes. There is something absolutely magical about Israel. I’ve never felt such a sense of spirituality or connection to God…something I’ve been missing for a few years now.”

The former Disney Channel star went on to explain how the excursion changed the way she viewed herself and God.  

“Spirituality is so important to me…to be baptized in the Jordan river – the same place Jesus was baptized – I’ve never felt more renewed in my life,” she shared. “This trip has been so important for my well-being, my heart, and my soul. I’m grateful for the memories made and the opportunity to be able to fill the God-sized hole in my heart. Thank you for having me, Israel
