Aside from voicing animated characters, Kristin Chenoweth has appeared on many movies and TV shows, including RV, Ugly Betty, Glee, and more.
In her personal life, Kristin Chenoweth is a Christian who does not believe in the hellfire and brimstone way of preaching, which she deems scary. Kristin Chenoweth believes that God is the epitome of love.
“I am a Christian and I don’t want there to be any confusion about what I believe or who I am. I don’t believe gay people are going to hell. I believe that judgment is left to the one upstairs and I believe Jesus is all about love. If I can live my life even just a smidgen the way God made his son for us as an example, I’m happy. I do not judge other people for what they believe, but for me, this is what works.”
My Little Pony fans will surely be pleased with the fresh pony voiced by the talented Kristin Chenoweth.
