Kanye West Performs at a Jail With His Sunday Service Choir
Kanye West has brought his Sunday Service to a Houston jailhouse.
According to a TMZ source, Kanye West and his choir reportedly visited the Harris County Jail, a correctional facility known for its religious programs, on Friday (Nov. 15). The Sunday Service collective put on a show for inmates in downtown Houston, an event that was set up by a few members of staff and a select group of inmates who kept the performance a secret from the rest of the population.
The law enforcement officers, who helped TMZ break the story, also state that Kanye reached out to the facility on Wednesday to help set up the event. One-hundred members of Kanye's Sunday Service choir reportedly put on two shows: one for the jail's male population and another for the female population.
This news arrives a week after Kanye, who dropped off his new Jesus Is King album on Oct. 25, unveiled his new video for "Follow God," which includes an appearance from Kanye's father. In a message that flashes across the screen in the video, Kanye speaks on a special revelation he recently had.
"My dad came to visit at one of our ranches in Cody, Wyoming," Kanye said. "He talked about his love for fishing, and how he would like to come here in the summers."
"It took me 42 years to realize that my dad was my best friend," he added.
