Worship singer believes daughter can be resurrected through prayers

A worship leader in the United States is asking for prayers from the public as she believes her two-year-old daughter could be resurrected through divine intervention. At the same time, their family’s fundraising effort for their supposed medical expenses, targeting $100,000, has led to questions and suspicions from people online.

Kalley and Andrew Heiligenthal’s daughter passed away last Saturday, Dec. 14, as per CBN News on Dec. 16. The two are members of Bethel Music, a worship ministry in California.

The worship leader set up a GoFundMe page to help with the “unforeseeable expenses the Heiligenthal family will incur, medical and otherwise,” according to the fundraiser website.

But Kalley also claimed that it was time for their little girl Olive Alayne to come back to life, as seen on her Instagram account last Sunday, Dec. 15.

“We believe in a Jesus who died and conclusively defeated every grave, holding the keys to resurrection power,” Kalley said. “We need it for our little Olive Alayne, who stopped breathing yesterday and has been pronounced dead by doctors.”

Kalley also believed that their daughter’s time on earth is not yet done. “[I]t is our time to believe boldly, and with confidence wield what King Jesus paid for,” Kalley added. “It’s time for her to come to life.”


A certain @mmmirele posted about the family’s fundraising page on Twitter yesterday, Dec. 17. Another netizen, @5thTMNT, responded to the post: “This is either lunacy or a giant scam in the making.”

Another Twitter user also expressed concern about how the family is processing their daughter’s death.

“I have observed firsthand people getting psychologically destroyed, for years, because they didn’t get an expected miracle,” @C_Stroop stated yesterday.

The netizen also said that waiting for a resurrection was unhealthy, and questioned why the family was asking for such a huge donation of money.

As of writing, the page has raised $38,000 of its goal. JB
