Rapper and singer Kanye West is getting even more popular since he started holding church service programs in public spaces. Briefly.co.za earlier reported how he held a church service at Howard University, leading students into a powerful worship session.
His programs which he describes as 'art to make believers' was held at Emancipation park, in Kingston, Jamaica recently. West who was said to have led the worship session with at least a 120 member choir, opened the service with the gospel song, Prince of Peace, and also performed Damian Marley's Welcome to Jamrock. He closed the show with Jesus Walks, TMZ reports.
The rapper was pictured with his crew all wearing a branded shirt and leading people to worship God. Reports and video clips show that a lot of people who showed up for the 'Sunday' service, held on a Friday were moved emotionally and some were seen crying during the session.
West is also set to release a movie titled Jesus is King. Reports have stated that the film will be released alongside an album and during the show at Jamaica, he teased his audience with a preview of the movie.
It was gathered that the movie is directed by Nick Knight and release date for the movie and album remain unclear. However, with his church services, many believe that West is building up the minds of people to look forward to the movie.
Although the rapper says he is actively using art to make believers, no one can argue that the movie and the album are set to rake in a truckload of money for the artist.
The singer is set to release his new Jesus is King album after he found salvation and became 'born again'. His fans cannot wait to see what he has in store for them. Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the much-anticipated album contains 12 songs and was scheduled to drop on 27 September (at exactly 00:00 on 26 September).
However the album's release was delayed, and this had his fans disappointed.
