Jonathan Cain has been a member of the highly successful rock group, Journey, for nearly 49 years. But the songwriter behind hits like “Don’t Stop Believin” and “Faithfully” recently shared that God was the source behind the music, opening up about his personal faith journey in a powerful new interview.
