Rebecca St. James, who has long sung about abstinence, purity, and saving herself for marriage, announced today that she is engaged. The 33-year-old St. James will marry Jacob Fink at a date to be announced soon. Fink proposed on Christmas Day at the St. James family farm in Franklin, Tennessee; the happy couple is pictured here.
St. James said, "We are truly amazed at finding our dreams and ideals met in the love we've found. We are exceedingly grateful for this precious gift from God."
Her signature song, "Wait For Me," released in 2000, has long been a rallying cry for teen girls committed to abstinence and purity before marriage. St. James, who recently signed with Provident Label Group's Beach Street/ Reunion Records, will release a new worship album in April.1
