In an interview with Christine Yeargin, as part of Students for Life podcasts, former Pussycat Dolls pop star, Kaya Jones, 38, shared her journey to Christ that included leaving the popular girl’s group in 2004, CBN reports.
At times, Jones felt like a prostitute, as a member of the popular girl band, because she had sold herself to a dream and popularity. She felt manipulated, controlled and at times as little more than an ‘owned commodity.’
Her journey included three abortions. The first took place when she was 16 and the second as a member of the band, when she was told to get an abortion. The third happened after she was raped at the age of 30.
But it was a moment during one of her concerts that really spoke to her. Jones, who was in the process of having the second abortion, saw two young girls in the audience.
“When you are doing things that are really incorrect and your body is up for grabs, this is where we have to take a hard look at ourselves and for me, I had to take a hard look at myself when I had two young fans in the audience looking at me,” Jones said.
“When you see these two little faces and at that moment, I was going through an abortion. I’m losing my child in real-time…these two little girls are looking at me going ‘wow Mom, she’s a Pussycat Doll’,” Jones added.
After leaving the band in 2004, Jones had to deal with her anger and regret but said that she eventually found healing in Jesus’ forgiveness.
She is now pursuing a solo career in singing and won a Grammy Award in 2019 for a collaboration with gospel singer, Jason Crabb.
