According to two people who attended a Kanye West concert on Friday, over 1,000 people gave their lives to Jesus Christ during the famed rapper's altar call.

West performed underneath the crosses outside Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The event drew thousands of people who came to lift their hands and worship. Even though the service started an hour late, according to Fox 8, people said they were thrilled to participate.

One couple that attended the event said that West gave an impromptu altar call.

"Tonight, @candacebrewington & I got to experience Kanye West's Sunday Service at @bethany_church in Baton Rouge," Curvine Brewington—a pastor at Crossroads Church in Lafayette, Louisiana—posted on Instagram.

"If you've ever doubted the legitimacy or spiritual impact of this #sundayservice project, simply look at this incredible shot taken by @the.smitan during the altar call. YES, I said ALTAR CALL. Tonight, worship was lifted, the name of Christ was exalted, the Word of God was preached, a multitude prayed together, the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, and an opportunity to respond was given.

"In a crowd of 6,000 people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, i witnessed over 1,000 people respond to The Gospel by raising their hands to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior! Say what you want, & think what you want.... But trust me when I tell you - The Spirit of the Living God was indeed present. I danced, wept, stood in awe of God's redemptive work, & can honestly say that tonight I witnessed a new wave of REVIVAL first hand. #Jesusisking"

Brewington's wife, Candace, also posted on Instagram about the event, saying that "this man met JESUS and He changed everything, and now he is telling everyone!"

West opened the concert with the song "Closed on Sunday" from his newly released album, Jesus Is King, reports The Advocate.

"You my Chick-Fil-A," West rapped. "Hold the selfies. Put the 'gram away. Get your family. Y'all hold hands and pray. ... Raise our sons. Train them in the faith, through temptations. Make sure they're wide awake. Follow Jesus. Listen and obey."

Many in the crowd were impressed with West's devotion to the Lord, especially his rocky faith journey in the past.

"I've just been excited to see Kanye's journey because I know he's had a faith struggle for a while but seeing him get radically saved and give his life to Jesus is amazing," said Jordan Varnado.
