Can I hear the good songs of a depraved singer?

Question

Can I listen to songs that have decent words, (and sometimes even have a positive message) if the singer who sang them is a depraved person? Thank you.

Response

It can not be said that this is forbidden. However, it can be said that it is inappropriate to do so and it will have a negative effect on a person’s mind.

Thank G-d, there are many decent and good songs that are sung by good people, so why should you listen to songs that have a negative impact on one’s souls?

Sincerely,

Benjamin Shmueli
