Kanye West's surprise prison detour comes two days before his service at Pastor Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Houston where he will be interviewed by Osteen about overcoming adversity and his faith journey. Like his other Sunday Service shows, this one was heavy on the faith aspect, which was clearly important to lots of the audience.

"In regards to tickets being sold on StubHub, all of the tickets are non-transferable", Lakewood Church said in a statement. Numerous parishioners seated around West took photos of him with their cellphones.

Boasting his open arrogance, which stems from a never ending belief in his own musical talent, West said "Jesus has won the victory because now the greatest artist that God has ever created is working for him". "He's using me to point to him". Make a difference and partner with us today. For your security, we've sent a confirmation email to the address you entered. At the service was Jose Gonzalez, a 25-year-old who said "I don't see why it would not be genuine".

Speaking after the performance, CNN reports that a number of officials were supportive of West's performances and thanked the artist for this philanthropic work. "Especially with someone with his platform that talks about God and love and unity, it can get really shut down unfairly".

"So in the studio, and this studio is gonna compare to places that you're in in life when people tell you to quiet your voice and not talk about Jesus so loud", he continued.

West and his wife are among the celebrities who have expressed support for Texas death row inmate Rodney Reed, who received an execution stay on Friday.

Though the church was filled with people there were plenty of controversies online by those who didn't feel Kanye should attend the service.

Osteen's weekly television program is viewed by more than 13 million households in the US and millions others in more than 100 nations around the world.
