Kanye West performed for prison inmates recently, bringing his Sunday Service show to a Houston jail.

Rapper Kanye West payed a visit to the Harris County Jail in Houston, Texas yesterday, performing a number of songs for inmates. According to TMZ, Kanye set up the whole thing as the jail has a very popular religious program.

Kanye performed alongside 100 choir and band members, and hosted two shows of around 100 people each - one for the male inmates, and a separate one for the female inmates.

Kanye visited the jail ahead of his appearance at a church in the city of Houston this coming Sunday. The rapper's Sunday Service performances are in collaboration with his ninth studio album released earlier this year, 'Jesus Is King'.

The rapper's visit to a prison serves as a reminder of when legendary country singer Johnny Cash performed in California's Folsom Prison back in 1968.
