Popstar Justin Bieber becomes emotional during his live performance of the song “Holy” on “SNL” with Chance The Rapper.
Pop music icon Justin Bieber took the stage of NBC’s show Saturday Night Live with an emotional performance. Together with Christian rapper Chancellor Johnathan Bennett, popularly known as “Chance The Rapper,” they performed their latest single “Holy” live on national television.
In a stage set as a rural church with an illuminated cross as a backdrop, worship filled the atmosphere. The 26-year-old singer took the audience to church as he began singing the tune with his hand on his heart as a form of worship.
“Oh God, Runnin’ to the altar like a track star. Can’t wait another second cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me feels so holy,” Justin sang.
Chance the Rapper
“Holy” is a song by the Canadian singer featuring American rapper Chance the Rapper released in September 2020. The pop-gospel song talks about relationship, marriage, and faith in God amidst adversity.
“The first step pleases the Father/Might be the hardest to take/But when you come out of the water/I’m a believer,” Chance rapped. “Gotta clean it up/Formalize the union in communion/He can trust/I know I ain’t leaving you like I know He ain’t leaving us/I know we believe in God and I know God believes in us.”
As the song comes to an end, the emotion became stronger. Justin ended the performance bowing down and Chance reached over him patting him on his back to show support. The raw emotions and the faith in God of these artists can literally be felt by the audience.
Upon the release of this single, Justin Bieber emphasized that “Holy” marks the beginning of a new era.
