During his appearance, he spoke about his spiritual journey.

“I know that God’s been calling me for a long time and the devil’s been distracting me for a long time,” he said to the crowd.

“When I was in my lowest points, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me, and I remember sitting in the hospital at UCLA after having a mental breakdown and there’s documentation of me drawing a church and [wanting to] start a church in the middle of Calabasas.”

He said that despite “all of that arrogance and cockiness that y’all have seen from me,” God is now using him.

“Because every time I stand up, I feel that I’m standing up and drawing a line in the sand and saying, ‘I’m here in service to God and no weapon formed against me shall prosper.’ Jesus has won the victory. I told you about my arrogance and cockiness already. Now the greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for him,” he said smiling.

Kim Kardashian and daughter North West were also welcomed onstage during the ceremony, and he is expected to return to the church for a Sunday Service performance.
