A number of gospel artists like William Murphy, VaShawn Mitchell, and Tasha Cobbs promoted the benefit concert event on their social media pages while asking their followers to donate to the cause.
“We’re standing with our brother #DeonKipping today, and as a Body, we’re going to collectively lift this burden. God dealt with the cancer, now we’re going to deal with the debt,” a message on Murphy’s page reads. “All we need is 1,900 of you to stand with a $10 love offering, because I’m sowing the first $500, and declaring #samegrace! If God did it for Deon, He’ll do it for us!”
Following the church event supporting the Connecticut-based gospel singer, Kipping took to Instagram to express his gratitude for the financial, emotional and spiritual support he has received from peers and fans in his time of need.
“I woke up this morning speechless! I try to help so many people, it’s been something my grandfather instilled in me,” he wrote. “I personally have never experienced acts of kindness of this magnitude. I didn’t ask for it. I don’t deserve it, but I am so grateful!
