Soul great AL GREEN still can't believe he's living the life a mad former girlfriend predicted for him before she committed suicide.

The LET'S STAY TOGETHER singer simply thought his ex, MARY, was crazy when she told him of premonitions she'd had, in which Green was a preacher with his own church.

He says, "She told me so many things that are happening now, and I told her she was crazy.

"She said, 'You're gonna have a church, Al, and believe me, it's gonna be fantastic. And you're gonna be the minister.

"Now, all these years later, I'm exactly what she said."

Green is now an ordained minister, who runs the Full Gospel Tabernacle church in Memphis, Tennessee.
