The reports are saying that DMX will take center stage at the Morning Star Sanctified Church on Saturday (March 6th). Better known as the Earl Simmons to the government, DMX has reportedly agreed to take part in a fundraiser to help raise money for repairs.
In related news, X previously said he was going to take the religous route once he got out of prison. "I'm gonna start a TV show while I'm in here, 'Pain and Perseverance.' It's about how I can reach people the average person can't reach because I'm grounded," he said in a January 2009 interview. "And then I'm going to give my first sermon in church, that's gonna be like, incredible for me. I have actually just completed a gospel album. On every one of my albums, there's been a gospel song and a prayer and of course with the image, they never made those into singles, except for my sixth album. They did "Lord Give Me A Sign" as a single."
