What does Jesus and Rick Astley have in common?

I didn't know that dude was White until a few months ago. Rick Astley I mean, not Jesus.
Update 2: Patsy, the link is only for people who don't know whom I'm speaking of. It is the VH1 "Pop Up Video" version, so you could learn something, lol.
Update 3: Patsy: I'll watch it for you and pass along my notes. Hold on.
Update 4: From the "Pop-up Video":

A bunch of other people thought he was Black, it wasn't just me.

The video's director and the producer argued for two hours over whether or not Rick should have his sleeves rolled up.

And Rick sang back up in Disney's "The Lion King".
