Chance the Rapper left a lasting impact on fans who attended the Charlotte, North Carolina-leg of his “Be Encouraged Tour” after he asked concertgoers if they wanted to go to Heaven.
Before performing the song “Blessings,” the rapper, who was born as Chancellor Bennett, asked his audience who among them wanted to go to Heaven. Fans who went to the 24-year-old rapper’s concert on Thursday night shared their experience on social media, saying, “Last night I was at the @chancetherapper concert, in real tears when he asked who wanted to go to Heaven.”
Other fans recounted the moment in similar fashion by tweeting, “last night @chancetherapper asked us if we wanted to go to Heaven. It was a moment. #BeEncouragedTour2017.”
NBA star Kevin Durant, who attended the rapper’s tour at the Golden State Warriors’ Oracle Arena, described parts of the concert as feeling like he was at church.
“He took us to church. … I felt the spirit when I left the concert,” Durant said in a live stream with fans in April. “He was impressive. For that to be his second arena show ever, he really did a great job and he’s only going to get better. You can tell.”
