Kanye West at Joel Osteen at Lakewood Church in Houston will be the most important performance you have ever dedicated to God, and there is such a demand for tickets that we have learned that Scalpers have pulled up their ugly heads.
Kanye will be keeping an eye on him on Sunday morning when he takes the stage with Joel Osteen – which is not usually a problem – except this time the crowd is not full of Yeezy fans.
Kanye will attend Joel's 11:00 pm ceremony at Lakewood Church and chat with Joel for 20-30 minutes about his religious journey . It will be the first time that Kanye spoke to his audience about his religious transformation – 45,000 people !!!
Joel's 11 o'clock service will consist mostly of his regular churchgoers and not of throngs of Kanye fans at Yes Sunday service … so for Kanye this is new territory.
Our sources say he is thrilled to share his message and journey with a space in which not only Joel, but also those who had their own religious revivals, are present.
As for the Sunday night church service – when Kanye's choir will perform – we were told that both Kanye's and Joel's teams expect it to be a crowd of people mostly made up of Yeezy believers. TMZ told the story … Lakewood teamed with Ticketmaster to coordinate the ticket distribution . The tickets are free, but some have already been picked up by people who just want to make money. We have learned that the tickets held by Scalpers are invalid.
We've learned that Kanye will have his entire band and choir with him … and Lakewood's technical directors had to expand the stage to get fit.
