WATCH: Chance the Rapper Says his Favorite Hymn is “This is the Day,” Explains Why ‘Singing is Praying Twice’

Stephen Colbert interviewed Chance the Rapper on CBS’s The Late Show last night.

The Chicago-based Grammy-award winning artist was asked to explain a previous statement: “Singing is praying twice.” He tried. But, Colbert ended up explaining it better than the singer did.

Chance also revealed his favorite hymn is “This is the Day the Lord Hath Made,” and sang a few bars of his rendition a cappella.

Chance the Rapper also debuted a new song on the show — one so new it doesn’t have a title yet.

Colbert also asked Chance about his charity work in support of Chicago public schools and whether or not he wanted to run for mayor of the city.
