Kanye West says his performance at Houston jails ‘is a mission, not a show’

Kanye West made surprise appearances at two Harris County jails in Houston on Friday.

The music superstar performed and provided some motivational words to the inmates, reportedly telling them, “This is a mission, not a show” per Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, who tweeted about the visit.

In a show kept secret from the public, the star rapper-turned-gospel singer performed songs Friday from his new gospel album, “Jesus is King.”

He and his choir performed for more than 200 male inmates at one jail facility before crossing the street to another jail facility and performing for a smaller crowd of female inmates.

The Friday concerts were performed two days before West is to speak at Joel Osteen’s vast Lakewood Church in Houston. He was invited by Olsteen a few weeks after his album dropped.
