Kanye West, US rapper and gospel singer, has taken his religious performance to the Harris County Jail in Houston, Texas, where inmates were thrilled to his ‘Jesus is King’ album.
The 42-year-old ‘Golddigger’ singer’s performance on Friday, comes days before he was set to bring the show to Joel Osteen’s megachurch in Houston, Texas — where he’ll have a morning conversation about faith followed by an evening performance with his choir.
Ed Gonzalez, Harry County sheriff, took to his Twitter page to appreciate the rapper for the visit.
“@kanyewest visited us today. I know he has a busy weekend in H-Town surrounding his visit to @lakewoodchurch, so appreciate him and his choir spending time with us,” he wrote.
“This is a mission, not a show.”

Jason Spencer, public affairs director for the sheriff’s office, also shared pictures of inmates who seemed to be in the midst of worship during the performance.
It is believed that West and his choir performed for over 200 male inmates at one jail facility before crossing the street to another jail facility to thrill a smaller crowd of female inmates.
He also said that he may legally change his name to “Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West.”

After kicking off with one performance for more than 200 men at the 701 San Jacinto building, @kanyewest ducked down into the underground tunnel and turned up in the main Baker Street jail to do a second show for a smaller crowd of women. https://t.co/VNJqoq3Ult pic.twitter.com/95ZFVWQ0HC
