After his album “Jesus is King” and his first opera, Kanye West goes on with a new project: “Mary”.
We can not stop Ye anymore. On November 24, at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, he performs during his first opera. A resounding success. So much so that the rapper has already announced a new opera: “Mary”! It will be held at the Miami Marine Stadium on December 8th.
The rapper will then share the stage with Vanessa Beecroft and her gospel troupe. As for his first opera. “Mary” still seems guided by her faith, as her tweet attests. This one presents a verse of the Bible. “The angel said to him,” Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Behold, you are going to be pregnant, you will give birth to a son and you will give him the name of Jesus “.
As a reminder, the name of his first opera referred to the king of the neo-Babylonian empire. A man known for besieging Jerusalem. After the release of his new album “Jesus is King”, Kanye West thus crossed a new musical stage in his conversion to the faith!

KANYE WEST, ARTIST WITH MULTIPLE FACETS
As well loved as hated, one thing is certain, Kanye West has never stopped innovating musically. Throughout his career, he was able to mix musical styles. In “808s & Heartbreak” he democratizes the autotune. All of his songs use this technique.
He also collaborates with artists far from rap. This is the case for “Homecoming” with Chris Martin, the singer of Coldplay. We can also quote his song “FourFiveSeconds” in collaboration with Rihanna as well as … Paul McCartney the illustrious member of the Beatles! Ye’s turn towards Christian rap with Gospel influences seems to be just another musical style added to his wide artistic palette.
