The Grammy Award winner and his choir sang songs from his gospel album "Jesus is King" on Friday as prisoners waved their hands and knelt in prayer. West says that his visit is "a mission, not a show," according to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.
"Tell me what I want for the man," said Jason Spencer, public affairs director at the Harris County Sheriff's Office. "But Kanye West and his choir have brought some light to the people who need him today at the Harris County Jail."
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted Saturday that it would be "great if other contractors follow Kanye's leadership."  "What Kanye West does to inspire prisoners is transformative," says Abbot . "Saving one soul at a time. Prisoners who turn to God may be released earlier [because] for good behavior and may be less likely to commit future crimes."
