For over 20 years, Awaken 2020 has ministered to thousands of people, but this year, it’s seeing unprecedented attendance numbers, largely in thanks to Kanye West, according to Faithwire.
When the controversial rapper turned outspoken Christian announced earlier this week that he and his Sunday Service choir would perform at the free Christian event, attendees flooded the website. Tickets for the show, which is held in the Sun Devil Stadium and holds 50,000 people, were sold out in minutes and eventually crashed the website.
Lou Engle, founder of Awaken, is encouraged by the momentum West is causing.
