Kanye West announces second event at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church
Fans will now have two opportunities to see rapper Kanye West at Lakewood Church this Sunday, November 17.
Earlier in the week, a church spokesperson announced West will be at the 11 am service in the auditorium for a conversation with pastor Joel Osteen on West's faith journey and overcoming adversity.
The service and parking are free and open to the public. The Lakewood spokesperson adds that the church auditorium is expected to be filled. (Lakewood has seating for 16,000.)
For those who can't attend: Lakewood says you can watch the service live on the church's Facebook and YouTube pages, website, app, and on SiriusXM's Joel Osteen Radio channel 128 — as well as the SiriusXM app.
But that's not all West will be doing at the church on Sunday: Later in the evening, West will hold his own Sunday Service at Lakewood.
It's free, but you'll need to get an e-ticket through the TicketMaster website or app starting Saturday, November 16. The night concert will include performances from West and his choir and will also be streamed. Doors open at 5:30 pm; the show starts at 7 pm.
The Houston visit stems from a personal invite from Osteen back on October 25. The spokesperson said Osteen and West "do speak from time to time," and according to an article published by TMZ, Osteen is a fan of West and believes his life is rooted in faith and love. West released a gospel album last month entitled Jesus is King.
