Kanye West is known for putting on an eye-catching show, and his performance on Sunday, December 8 proved exactly that! The 42-year-old covered himself in silver from head-to-toe as he showcased his new opera, Mary, at The Marine Stadium in Miami.
The Jesus Is King rapper dressed in a silver jumpsuit-like robe. Kanye also covered his entire face with silver body paint. In several photos, Kanye smiled from ear to ear as he committed to his role.
Mary featured Kanye’s older songs including “Devil In A New Dress,” “Love Lockdown,” “I Thought About Killing You,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” “Power” and more. Kanye also read passages from the Bible.
Last month, Kanye announced his first-ever opera, Nebuchadnezzar: A Kanye West Opera, which was titled after a king of Babylon, who is mentioned in the Book of Daniel. While on Twitter, Kanye unveiled the event’s invitation and revealed that the performance would be directed by artist Vanessa Beecroft and featured “music with Sunday Service, Peter Collins & Infinities Song.”
In addition to releasing two operas this year, Kanye spilled the beans that he is dropping another album at the end of this month. “Sunday Service album, Jesus Is Born is coming on Christmas," Kanye spilled to Zane Lowe during an interview. "It's coming."
