HOUSTON — Kanye West attended two services at Lakewood Church on Sunday. The first was a question and answer segment during Lakewood’s Sunday morning service and the second was West’s “Jesus is King: Sunday Service Experience.”
West and his choir performed for about two hours during the evening service. It was live-streamed on the church’s social media pages and website.
Lines of fans wrapped around the block.
Osteen said he invited West because the rapper reaches people that church normally can’t.
“We traveled all the way from College Station,” Melanie Rodriguez said.
“I’m actually really surprised by the mayhem. I thought people had written Kanye off. I was surprised to see so much support for him tonight,” Chinedu Anikwata said.
