Kanye West Surprises Inmates Twice with Prison Performances
Kanye West brought the music and hope of Jesus is King to Harris County Jail in Houston, Texas on Friday.
West and his team set up two secret performances at the San Jacinto building for a group of 200 men and the second for a smaller group of women at the Baker Street jail, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Kayne’s team had to do some smart planning with little notice. They called Sheriff Ed Gonzalez Wednesday to ask if they could set up the shows. He agreed.
West walked around shaking hands and hugging inmates. He appeared in his element, with dancers in tow during what he called, “a mission, not a show.”
He, and the message of the gospel seem to have been well received based on video footage showing men with raised hands worshiping God and some also kneeling in prayer.
Scheduled to speak and perform at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church today, Kanye is indeed sharing the love of Christ and fulfilling Matthew 25:36 where Jesus said “… I was in prison and you came to me.”
