Kanye West embraces his inner ‘Silver Surfer’ for ‘Mary’ Opera Performance

Kanye West in Silver.

As if he was fresh out of a comic book. It would seem Mr. West is seriously taking his renewed relationship with God to heart by dressing up like the Marvel character that could possibly break into heaven.

Since the release of his first opera “Nebuchadnezzar”, Kanye West debuted another installment of the performance series called “Mary”, in Miami. Vanessa Beecroft, who directed Nebuchadnezzar, sat again in the director’s chair as the Kanye and his Sunday Service collective belted out a powerful and moving set of ear candy.


What took center stage, however, was the Louis Vuitton Don’s attire and paint job. Although, this was held during Miami Art Basel, the self-proclaimed “greatest artist that God ever created”, baffled many in attentance at the Miami Marine Stadium. Many took to social media documenting the soulful but peculiar performance.

Kanye tweeted the Biblical verse: Luke 1:30-31: “And the angel said unto her, ‘Fear not, Mary: ‘For though hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in they womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.’” Announcing the Opera.

Ye is currently working on the next offering, Jesus Is Born, that will drop on Christmas Day, and the Jesus Is King sequel collaboration with Dr. Dre.
