Award-winning rapper Lecrae was joined by Reach Records labelmate Andy Mineo for a live performance at the Apple store in SOHO in NYC Tuesday, leaving fans impressed and at least one new listener surprised to feel the Spirit of God present during the performance.
Enough fans showed up last night to get a glimpse of Lecrae’s 60-minute set that the store quickly reached capacity. Only those who arrived well ahead of the 7 p.m. show time were able to head to the second floor of the newly redesigned Apple store to check out the performance. Shutout fans made the best of the situation, however, as the sounds of “Church Clap,” “I Know” and a few other tracks from Lecrae’s “Rebah” (2010) and “Gravity” albums reverberated throughout the store.
Lecrae, joined for a few songs by Mineo, preached as much as he rapped, taking the time to share his testimony, respond to critics skeptical of Christian hip-hop and encourage the mostly-young audience to look to God to find what’s valuable in life.
One listener, exposed to Lecrae’s unique blend of gospel-centered hip-hop for the first time, said he felt the Spirit of God moving during the performance. Another listener, asked why he was there, said he simply found Lecrae’s music “different” from everything else present in hip-hop.
Some fans took to Twitter to share their reaction and photos from the scene.
