Luke Smallbone, For King And Country artist, shows his support for Kanye West following the popular rapper's new gospel album release.
After years in the spotlight, the rapper and media mogul has seen his fair share of scrutiny. But in 2019, Kanye formed a gospel-rap group called Sunday Service.
The talented ensemble would perform Christian favorites and gospel covers of some of Kanye's previous hits. Touring around the country, Sunday Service performs every single Sunday, including bringing God to thousands of people at events such as Coachella.
In October, Kanye released a full gospel album titled ‘Jesus Is King.' This change in genre has a lot of people looking closer at Kanye, but For King And Country singer Luke Smallbone says, "I'm rooting for him."
