Tyler Perry Lays Hands On Bishop T.D. Jakes, Donates $1 Million To Youth Center (VIDEO)

This past weekend, Bishop T.D. Jakes brought his MegaFest inspirational event to Dallas which included various events featuring Oprah Winfrey, Steve Harvey and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, to name a few.

One of the many highlights came from the hands of Tyler Perry -- literally. Perry, who attended Sunday morning service at Jakes’ Potters House church to announce his $1 million donation towards the influential spiritual leader’s developing youth center, took to the mic and towards the end of a rousing speech placed his hand on Jakes' head and blessed him.

“I love to give,” he said to those in attendance. “I’ve been a giver all my life. And when people have given to you, and sewn into you. And God has touched them and given you favor… See, they don’t understand it where I come from. They don’t understand it in Hollywood, but I’m going to tell you something about the blood of Jesus.”

Check out Tyler Perry’s inspirational message in the clip below.
