Kanye West Jumps in Swan Lake in Yerevan, Armenia During Surprise Performance

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

The Karadashians/Wests were in Armenia this weekend honoring the 100th year Anniversary of the Armenian genocide.   Earlier today Kanye held a surprise free concert at Swan Lake in the capital of Yerevan, where fans congregated to behold Yeezus perform his greatest hits. Who knew that at one point that meant literally walking on water.   Wait, are we talking about Yeezus or... never mind.

As his live show launched into the "The Good Life," Kanye took it upon himself to bridge the gap between him and the majority of the fans in attendance. From the video it looks like he may have underestimated the depth of the water where he leaped in (luckily he wasn't hurt).  Some fans followed suit and jumped in the lake after 'Ye.  I guess we can call them disciples.  I'm pretty sure his bodyguards loved this stunt.  No matter what you think of Kanye, you have to admit this is display of fan cuddle puddle is pretty cool, and when did we ever imagine we'd get to say that? Cuddle puddle.

We don't claim to know about the history of Armenia but read the touching words posted by aNNa Kachikyan on her Instagram below and see how this act by Kanye helps shine some much needed light on this challenged nation.

The Kardashians and Kanye West visiting Armenia brought huge global awareness to the Armenian Genocide cause. But last night in Armenia, when Kanye West gave a free concert in the capital for thousands of young Armenians-- that was not only a night to remember but a huge eye opening experience for these kids. While we live in the comfort of our great free nation, current day Armenia is still a tough place to live and thrive. Kanye's performance tonight lit up the entire capital during a very somber time. From what I'm hearing, the city truly came to life and made young adults feel there's hope and that their lives matter, that there's future ahead and light at the end of the dark tunnel. And for that I thank Kanye West for filling my brothers and sisters back home with hope at a very hard political time.
