Writer, director and TV producer Tyler Perry has a strong connection with church audiences. Much of the marketing of his movies and plays is done to the Sunday morning pew fillers, so this next video doesn’t come as a shock to us.
While attending Bishop TD Jakes‘ Megafest in Dallas, the Madea creator was moved to donate $1 million to help Jakes build a youth center.
