Mega-rapper, Trump supporter and born again Christian, Kanye West, made a surprise appearance at a Texas jail where he performed gospel music for both male and female prisoners.
Kanye recently released his newest album, “Jesus is King,” to rave reviews. The album immediately shot to the top of the album charts, with every single on the album appearing in the top 100 songs.
The Blaze reported on West’s inspirational visit to the prison.
“You know, it really was like a worship service,” Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said.
“Very uplifting, not only for the inmates that are in here, you could see some, you know, down on their knees in prayer, to even some of our teammates that were brought to tears, even his choir,” he continued.
“Say what you want about the man. But @kanyewest and his choir brought some light to people who needed it today at the Harris County Jail,” tweeted Jason Spencer, spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
West recently spoke about the treatment by the left he’s received since releasing his song “Closed On Sunday,” from his “Jesus is King” album.
Here’s a clip of what West had to say:
West is fearless. Whether you like him or not, he is walking the walk, and you have to give him credit for his bravery and commitment to spreading the word of the Lord.
