Back when Gospel concerts were the thing and Kirk Franklin was telling you the reason why he sings, John P. Kee was in high demand. His ability to captivate audiences was unlike any other. Being a Pastor helps. But as times change so does the styles of music. I say all that to say that he’s more of a throwback artist that still exists but you aren’t necessarily looking for him. Not to say you don’t love his music but your taste in music has changed and the John P. See’s aren’t as appetizing or so we thought.
This past weekend, John P. Kee and friends were present at the Apostolic Pentecostal Church of Morgan Park where Bill Ellis is the Pastor. The Live Free event included discussions with community stakeholders about non-violence practices and the importance of them. The conversations were moderated by our very own Pastor Mike of the ‘Touch Yo Neighbor’ show and he really is no amateur to having these dialogues. John P. Kee was the main event and you definitely got your money’s worth. In fact, some lucky members of the audience left with their bills paid. Pastor Kee gave money away like he’d just won the lottery. Every time someone worshipped God in a way that satisfied him, he called them up to the stage to receive money or had a choir member take the money to them as they remained seated. It was an interesting show-harmless gestures that could’ve been taken the wrong way but nonetheless it was a great display of love from someone who’s blessed and highly favored.
