A reader writes:

Speaking of Jennifer Knapp's revelations in Christianity Today, one of the biggest black gospel artists, Tonéx, came out on a Christian cable show last fall. It’s captivating TV. I was on a tour bus with some of his musician friends when this hit YouTube. I had said for years that he was gay and they denied it. They pretty much cut him off after he came out the closet.

The interview is in three parts - first here, second here, and third here. Discussion of his sexuality and faith begins around the 3:00 mark of the second clip.
