Grammy Award-winning artist Chance the Rapper, whose real name is Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, says his Christian wedding ceremony inspired many of his guests to start thinking about their relationship with God.
The famous emcee from Chicago was a guest on “Sway in the Morning” last month where he shared some details of his wedding to longtime love, Kirsten Corley.
“One of the best things that ever happened to me was when I got married,” he said. “My wedding was dope … the Spirit was in there.”
The 26-year-old said he surprised Corley during the ceremony with a “miniconcert” featuring gospel singers Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, and Hezekiah Walker.
“The whole union, between us and how we talked about what we planned it for, we wanted it to be a union for God. So we wanted it to be something that He could be proud of and something that we could use that space to develop that,” he continued.
When the wedding was over and they moved on to the reception, Chance said many of the guests came up to him and shared how the ceremony led them to start thinking about God.
“[They] were like, ‘Yo man, I know this sounds weird but today just makes me feel like there is a God,’” he recounted. “That’s a heavy, heavy thing to hear on your wedding day.”
