PERSONAL

PASSION THAT'S PRODUCED A

FAIRYTALE

STORY FOR ME.

LAUREN DAIGLE EARNS TOP

HONORS AT THE

MUSIC AWARDS BEING NAMED THE

ARTIST OF

THE YEAR.

SHE WAS NAMED ARTIST OF THE

YEAR AND

SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR.

THE SHOW ALSO HAD THIS BIG

SURPRISE.

AND UNANNOUNCED REUNION

PERFORMANCE

FROM DC TOP. THE TROY WAS ONE

OF THE

MOST SUCCESSFUL ACTS IN

CONTEMPORARY

MUSIC BUT SPLIT 16 YEARS AGO.

NO. 4 IS EMOTIONAL.

SOMETIMES WE SING THE

GREATEST

REDEMPTION SONG OF ALL TIME

AND FILLS

US WITH THANKFULNESS. THAT

SONG IS

AMAZING GRACE.

3 YEARS AFTER SUFFERING A

DEBILITATING STROKE, HE MOVES

THE

AUDIENCE TO TEARS WITH THE

AMAZING GRACE HOW SWEET

THY SOUND.

LONG TIME

FRIEND GARTH BROOKS BY HIS

SIDE, RANDY

AT NO. 3.

A TRUE STORY.

IT'S MY STORY.

AND IT'S A STORY THAT BEGINS

IN

ATHEISM. LEE STROBEL'S STORY

IS A LONG

TIME SELLING BOOK AND NOW THE

CASE FOR

CHRIST IS HEADED IN THE BIG

SCREEN IN

ATLANTA AND STUDIO 5 IS

BEHIND THE SET

FOR THE MOVIE THAT WILL BE

RELEASED IN

2017 WITH BIG ACTORS LIKE

FAYE DUNAWAY.

WHAT WAS THE BREAKTHROUGH

MOMENT.

HILLSONG PASTOR CARL LENTZ

APPEARED

ON OPRAH'S SHOW THIS WEEK

THAT

INCLUDED THE POP STAR JUSTIN

BIEBER.

IT WAS THAT MOMENT WHERE

HE WAS

GOING THROUGH IT AND HE WAS

PULLING

HIMSELF UP.

AND RACISM IN AMERICA.

LET'S TELL THE WHITE

PERSON --

THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN.

IS IT OKAY TO HAVE A

CONVERSATION AND

HAVE A MOMENT TO FREAK OUT

BECAUSE IT

IF WAS JUST THAT ONE ISSUE,

BUT IT'S

NOT JUST THAT ONE.

AND NO. 1.

I AM NOT ASHAMED.

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN DRAWN

TO HYMNS.

THE STORY OF RACHEL JOY

SCOTT IS IN

THEATRES THIS WEEK. SHE WAS

THE FIRST

TO BE KILLED IN THE 1999

COLUMBINE

SCHOOL SHOOTING, SHOT FOR HER

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

GOOD MORNING, IT'S

TUESDAY, APRIL

1999.

THOSE ARE THIS WEEK'S TOP 5

FROM

STUDIO 5. AS YOU SEE WE ARE

HERE IN

THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA

TODAY. THIS

IS HOME TO THE GOLDEN STATE

WARRIORS

AND STEPH CURRY WHO IS

PHENOMENAL ON

THE COURT AND HIS WIFE IS

HERE IN THE

KITCHEN.

WE ARE TALKING FOOD AND

FAMILY WITH

STEPH CURRY.

THIS IS STUDIO 5 INTERVIEW.

WHEN GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS

GUARD STEPH

CURRY TAKES COURT, HIS

BIGGEST FAN IS

HIS WIFE ON THE SIDELINES.

HAVE YOU ALWAYS BEEN INTO

BASKETBALL?

OH, GOSH. NOT AT ALL.

I WAS ONLY INVOLVED WITH

FAMILY AND

WHAT I KNEW ABOUT SPORTS IS

BUFFALO

BASKETBALL.

MY DAD GREW UP IN BUFFALO.

MS. CURRY IS PASSIONATE

ABOUT THE

GAME THESE DAYS SHARING HER

TIME WITH

HER HUSBAND WHEN HE'S AT HOME.

HI, THIS IS BREAKFAST TIME.

CURRY'S PASSION IS IN THE

KITCHEN

SHARING RECIPES AND COOKING

TIPS WITH

THE MILLIONS WHO FOLLOW HER

ONLINE. IN

THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST

SELLING

COOKBOOK, "THE SEASONED LIFE

AND

FAMILY AND FAITH AND THE JOY

OF EATING

WELL".

WAS IT HARD TO DO?

YEAH, THERE WERE POINTS

WHERE I

WANTED TO GIVE UP AND POINTS

THAT WERE

ENJOYABLE AND POINTS WHERE I

DIDN'T

WANT TO DO IT ANYMORE AND I

PUSHED

THROUGH AND I'M HAPPY THAT I

DID.

I NOW HAVE THIS GREAT

COOKBOOK FOR

EVERYBODY TO ENJOY, BUT MORE

SO FOR ME

TO PASS DOWN TO MY DAUGHTERS.

YOUR PASSION FOR COOKING

IS CLEAR,

BUT THERE WAS A PERIOD YOU

WERE

PURSUING ACTING?

YEAH, IT'S SO FUNNY

BECAUSE LOOKING

BACK NOW SEEMS LIKE MY

CHILDHOOD, I

HAVE DONE IT'S SINCE I WAS 2.

I LEFT HIGH SCHOOL EARLY AND

WENT TO

L.A. TO PURSUE IT AND IT GOT

TO THE

POINT WHERE I REALIZED IT

WASN'T FOR

ME. I GUESS I WAS PRETTY GOOD

AT IT, I

WAS STEADILY WORKING, BUT I

DIDN'T

HAVE A PASSION FOR IT AND FOR

A LONG

PERIOD I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT MY

CAREER

WOULD BE AND I STRUGGLED WITH

THAT FOR

A WHILE, BUT I PRAYED ABOUT

IT AND

THEN I REALIZED IT WAS

STARING AT ME.

AND WITH HER HUSBAND STEPH

CURRY IS

WHAT PROMPTED AISHA TO SHARE

HER LIFE.

HOW IMPORTANT DO YOU THINK

IT IS

FOR PEOPLE TO ACKNOWLEDGE

GOD?

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT

BECAUSE YOU

FIND OUT YOU DON'T WANT TO BE

IN A

PLACE VERY QUICKLY. YOU ARE

SURE TO

ALWAYS HAVE CLARITY IN MIND

AND PEACE.

SHE'S QUICK TO SHARE HER

FAMILY AND

CHRISTIAN FAITH. SHE'S FIRST

A

BELIEVER AND A WIFE AND THEN

A MOTHER.

YOU HAVE A SOCIAL MEDIA

FOLLOWING.

YOU HAVE MORE THAN 4 MILLION

ON

INSTAGRAM.

YOU ARE OPEN ABOUT YOUR LIFE

AND SO

FORTH AND PASSIONATE.

BUT THAT COMES WITH CRITICS

TOO.

YEAH.

YOU GET SOME HEAT

SOMETIMES.

YEAH, 100% OF PEOPLE

AREN'T GOING

TO LIKE WHAT YOU DO 100% OF

THE TIME.

FANS QUESTIONS HER ABOUT

THE NBA

AND SIGNS THEY FOUND A LITTLE

TOO

REVEALING.

YOU CAN BE AN ANGEL AND

THEY ARE

GOING TO FIND SOMETHING TO

SAY.

I TAKE IT WITH NO PUN

INTENDED.

ON THE COURT, WHAT'S THE

STORY?

HE'S GETTING BETTER.

YOU KNOW, IT DIDN'T START OUT

SO WELL.

THERE ARE SOME STORIES ABOUT

THAT IN

THE BOOK AS WELL.

BUT HE'S GOTTEN BETTER.

AND AISHA KNOWS A BIT

ABOUT

PERSISTENCE. SHE NOW HAS A

SHOW ON THE

FOOD NETWORK. IT CAME ONLY

AFTER

EXECUTIVES SAID NO, A FEW

TIMES.

I GUESS MY MOTTO IS LET

THEM SAY NO

UNTIL THEY SAY YES. DON'T

STOP. DON'T

STOP.

SET YOUR DVR'S. IT'S

CALLED AISHA'S

HOMEMADE. COULD THERE BE AN

ANSWER TO

THE WARRIORS.

I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO START

A BIBLE

STUDY ON THIS TEAM.

WE ARE SITTING WITH

POWERFUL JAMES

MAC FOR THE RECIPES.

AND WELCOME BACK TO STUDIO

5, WE

ARE HERE IN THE SAN FRANCISCO

BAY

AREA, HOME TO THE GOLDEN

STATE

WARRIORS.

THE TEAM THAT GELS EXTREMELY

WELL ON

AND OFF THE COURT.

ONE IS JAMES MICHAEL, WE ARE

SITTING

WITH HIM BACK ON THE FIELD.

FOR ME TO GO ON THIS TEAM

WE ARE

LIKE BROTHERS. IT TRANSLATES

ON THE

COURT.

I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO START A

BIBLE

GROUP ON THIS TEAM. WE ARE

GOING FOR

THE LORD AND WE ARE THANKFUL

BECAUSE

WE KNOW THIS OPPORTUNITY WE

HAVE IT'S

NOT COMING ALONG EVERYDAY.

GUYS HAVE

BEEN PLAYING IN THE NBA FOR

10-20

YEARS.

WE HAVE GUYS THAT HAVE NOT

ALWAYS

LANDED THE FINALS. WE ARE IN

A

SITUATION WHERE GOD TELLS

YOU, I GOT

YOU.

IN A TEAM YOU HAVE LEADERS

AND

CAPTAINS. BUT WE PLAY FOR AN

AUDIENCE

OF ONE, THAT'S ALL. NOT FOR

FANS, NOT

FOR FAMILIES, NOT FOR

FRIENDS, NOT

EVEN FOR OUR TEAMMATES.

WHEN WE ARE ON THE COURT, I'M

PLAYING

FOR MY AUDIENCE OF ONE AND WE

ARE

PLAYING FOR AN AUDIENCE

THAT'S ONE AND

THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS. I

WANT GOD TO

KNOW THAT I'M DOING IT FOR

HIM AND HIS

KINGDOM.

HE IS SUCH A DYNAMIC

PLAYER. WHEN

YOU TAKE A LOOK BEHIND ME

THERE ISSAL

ALCATRAZ BEHIND ME. HE WAS

MARRED BY

JAIL AND GUN VIOLENCE. EARLY

IS IN THE

HOTTEST TEAM IN THE NBA.

THE GOLDEN WARRIORS IS NOT

THE HOTTEST

TEAM IN THE LEAGUE.

IT'S NOT JUST THE COURT.

IT'S HOW

THEY TREAT EACH OTHER AND

LOVE EACH

OTHER AND HAPPY TO BE AROUND

EACH

OTHER.

JUST LAST YEAR, THE TEAM

BROKE THE

RECORD FOR THE MOST

CONSECUTIVE WINS

PASSING THE RECORD OF 20

GAMES BACK IN

2012, AND POINT GUARD, STEPH

CURRY IS

EYEING SOMETHING OF HIS OWN

AND HE HAS

MORE THAN A JUMP SHOT.

HE HAS A RELATION WITH

BOARD SEE'S

A 3.SHOT. HE'S A FAMILY MAN

AND LOVES

HIS WIFE.

THE RELATIONSHIP AS ONE

KEY ELEMENT

TO HISTORY AS BEING CHAPLAIN

TO THE

WARRIORS AND THE 49ERS, HE'S

BEEN A

MINISTER TO PRISONERS FOR

MORE THAN 25

YEARS. HE SAYS THERE IS NOT

MUCH

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ATHLETE

AND A

PRISON INMATE.

THEY BOTH HAVE NUMBERS.

ATHLETES AND PRISONERS HAVE

NUMBERS.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT THE COUNTY

IN THE

SYSTEM ALSO COUNT IN

PROFESSIONAL

SPORTS.

THERE IS A BREAK.

PART OF THAT BREAK SMITH

SAYS COMES

FROM A LACK OF POSITIVE

INFLUENCE,

SOMETHING HE KNOWS FIRSTHAND.

FROM HIS OWN CHILDHOOD.

I WAS AN ANGRY KID, I WAS

A DRUG

DEALER, GANG MEMBER, MORE

ANGRY ABOUT

THE WAY I GREW UP.

AFTER A DRUG DEAL WENT BAD.

HE BROUGHT A PERSON TO MY

HOUSE AND

HE SHOT ME.

BUT I TELL PEOPLE, IT WASN'T

PERSONAL,

IT WAS BUSINESS. IT WAS BASED

ON MY

LIFESTYLE.

HE WAS RUSHED TO THE

HOSPITAL WITH

LIFE THREATENING BULLET

WOUNDS.

THE GREAT THING IS, THAT'S

NOT THE

END OF THE STORY.

THE DOCTOR TOLD HIS FATHER HE

WOULD

NEED A MIRACLE TO SURVIVE.

THE DOCTOR LOOKED AT MY

DAD AND

TOLD HIM I WAS NOT GOING TO

MAKE IT, I

WAS GOING TO DIE.

AND MY DAD GRABBED THE DOCTOR

AND SAID

DO YOUR BEST.

MY DAD WALKED OUT OF THE ROOM

AND I

UNDERSTAND HE WENT TO PRAY.

AS I WAS LAYING THERE, WHEN

YOU ARE

SHOT ALL OF YOUR BODY IS HOT,

IT'S

LIKE HOT HEAT, THEN ALL OF A

SUDDEN

THE BURNING STOPPED.

ALL OF A SUDDEN I FELT THE

PEACE AND

QUIET CAME OVER ME AND I

HEARD THIS

VOICE, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO

DIE. I

HAVE SOMETHING FOR YOU TO DO

AND YOU

ARE GOING TO BE A CHAPLAIN IN

SAN

QUENTIN.

HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

GOING ON,

BUT I KNEW HAVING A

RELATIONSHIP WITH

JESUS, HE WAS TELLING ME AND

THERE IS

MORE TO LIFE.

I WAS SAVED AT THAT POINT AND

I FOUGHT

IT.

THOSE HOLES CLOSED UP AND IT

WAS

NOTHING BUT JESUS.

THE FEELING DIDN'T END AT

THE

HOSPITAL. ONCE HE BECAME A

CHAPLAIN AT

THE PRISON, HE RAN INTO THE

MAN WHO

SHOT HIM.

I WAS HANDING OUT BASEBALL

CARDS

AND I SAW THE MAN AND I ASKED

WHAT IS

YOUR NAME AND I LOOKED AT HIM

AND I

REALIZED GOING TO BIBLE

COLLEGE AND

SEMINARY AND ALL THE OTHER

THINGS

DIDN'T MEAN ANYTHING. I HEARD

ABOUT

FORGIVENESS, BUT I STILL

HATED HIM AND

YET I WAS A CHAPLAIN AND I

WALKED AWAY

AND I STARTED TO CRY.

GOD, WHY WOULD YOU BRING ME

ALL THE

WAY TO THIS POINT AND MAKE ME

THINK IT

WAS OKAY.

I HAD TO PASS HIM AGAIN ON MY

WAY

LEAVING. WHEN I GOT TO HIS

CELL, I

LOOKED AT HIM AND HIS BACK

WAS AGAINST

THE CELL WALL. I SAID, I NEED

TO THANK

YOU. GOD USED YOU TO GET TO

ME. THOSE

WORDS CAME FROM JESUS.

THEY DIDN'T COME FROM ME.

FROM HIS OWN PERSONAL

TESTIMONY

FROM PRISONER TO CHAPLAIN, HE

LEARNED

FROM HIS OWN EXPERIENCE AND

WHAT HE

CAN AND HE ALSO KNOWS THAT

GOD IS

BIGGER WHERE YOU COME FROM.

THE WARRIORS AND A BIGGER

PERSON

THAT ME, FOR ME, WHEN I TALK

ABOUT

HOPE, I SAY LET'S TALK ABOUT

WHAT IT

WAS BEFORE IT STARTS.

LET'S TALK ABOUT WHAT IT GOT

YOU TO

THIS POINT, BECAUSE I CAN GET

JESUS TO

GET YOU BEYOND THAT.

COMING UP, STUDIO 5, WHERE

IT'S

HOME TO SILICON VALLEY.

SILICON VALLEY IS AN

INNOVATION AND

ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND

TECHNOLOGY.

SEE WHY HE'S MAKING A CASE

FOR

SPIRITUAL REVIVAL WITH A

APPLE, GOOGLE, FACEBOOK,

YOU MAY

NOT THINK OF A REVIVAL. WHAT

HE SAYS

FROM SILICON VALLEY IS YOU

SHOULD.

SILICON VALLEY IS KNOWN

MOSTLY A

PLACE FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP,

TECHNOLOGY, IT'S A VERY

DIVERSE

COMMUNITY, ALL SORTS OF

ETHNIC GROUPS

FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

IT'S A

PLACE WHERE TECHNOLOGY

THRIVES,

ENTREPRENEURSHIP THRIVES.

WHAT I FOUND AS I STARTED

TO PUT

TOGETHER MY BLOG AND MY BOOK

IS THAT

PEOPLE HAVE MOVED FROM

OUTSIDE SILICON

VALLEY TO THIS AREA AND MAYBE

THEY

COME FROM THE SOUTH OR

MIDWEST WHERE

THEY FOUND A CULTURE TO BE A

CHRISTIAN, BUT WHAT THEY HAVE

FOUND IS

THAT PEOPLE THAT WERE

FOLLOWERS OF

CHRIST TEND TO BE MORE

COMMITTED TO

FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST AND IT

MAKES SENSE

TO THINK OF IT BECAUSE IT'S

COUNTER

CULTURE TO BE A CHRISTIAN IN

SILICON

VALLEY. WHAT I FOUND WITH THE

YOUNG

ENTREPRENEURS WERE BUILDING

THEIR

BUSINESSES TO GLORIFY CHRIST.

WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES?

AN EXAMPLE IS A GENTLEMAN

NAMED

NEAL AUSTIN. HE GOT A SENSE

FROM

GOOGLE WHERE HE HAD A CALL

FROM GOD,

THE PRAYER APP IS CALLED

ABIDE. WHEN

GOD CALLS, YOU BETTER SHOW

UP.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR

THIS

SECTION OF THE WORLD FOR GOD

TO BE

HERE?

MY HOPE IS THAT IN SILICON

VALLEY,

IF SILICON VALLEY CAN BECOME

NOT ONLY

AS A PLACE OF TECHNOLOGY AND

INNOVATION AND CREATION, BUT

ALSO

KNOWN AS A PLACE OF GOD, THEN

THE

WORLD WILL TAKE NOTICE.

NEXT UP ON STUDIO 5, THIS

MAN

SUPERB IN LOVE.

GOING INTO A TIME LESS

MESSAGE OF

FREEDOM FROM THE LEGENDARY

AND WE ARE JUST ABOUT OUT

OF TIME

FOR THE SHOW COMING TO YOU

FROM THE

SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA.

BEFORE WE GET

TO THE FINAL WORD, LET'S TAKE

A LOOK

AHEAD TO NEXT WEEK. A --

SUFFERING

FROM CHRONIC FATIGUE

SYNDROME, WHAT IS

THAT

HEAR ABOUT THE PASTOR

MANAGING HIS

BUSY LIFE TO RISE UP TO DO

THE SAME.

THAT'S FOR NEXT WEEK'S RUN

DOWN. I'M

TALKING ABOUT THE LEGENDARY

ACTRESS

RUBY DEA AND SHE IS

DEFINITELY UP

LIFTING.

FINALLY OURS, THIS

FREEDOM, THIS

LIBERTY AND BEAUTIFUL AND

TERRIBLE

THING.

USABLE IS THE EARTH WHEN IT

BELONGS TO

OUR CHILDREN AND IT'S TRULY

INSTINCT,

BRAIN MATTER AND REFLECT

ACTION. WHEN

IT IS FINALLY WON, WHEN IT'S

MORE THAN

THE MUMBLE JUMBLE OF

POLITICIANS, THIS

MAN, THIS NEGRO, VISIONING A

WORLD

WHEN NONE IS LONELY, NONE

HUNTED,

ALIEN, THIS MAN SUPERB IN

LOVE AND

LOGIC TO BE REMEMBERED NOT

WITH

STATUTES AND NOT WITH LEGENDS

AND

POEMS, BUT WITH THE LIVES

GROWN OUT OF

HIS LIFE. LIVES FLESHING THE

DREAM OF

THIS BEAUTIFUL THING.

THAT IS THE FINAL WORD FOR

THIS

EDITION OF STUDIO 5, RUBY DEE
