Lecrae became Dr. Lecrae Moore this week
when Canada Christian College awarded
him an honorary doctorate of music degree
at a stop in Toronto on the Higher Learning Tour.

“Over the college’s 50-year history, it has
bestowed honorary degrees to notable
leaders such as the Hon. Jim Flaherty,
lieutenant-governor David Onley, Rev.
Franklin Graham and now Lecrae, who will
be the youngest recipient of such a degree,” Canada Christian College president Dr.
Charles McVety said, according to the Toronto Sun.

McVety penned a letter to Toronto mayor
John Tory and police Chief Mark Saunders
about the occasion.

“Lecrae was raised by a single mother and
he never met his father,” McVety wrote. “He
was lost in the inner city of Houston taking
drugs and reportedly dealing heroin. God
dramatically turned his life around from the
ghetto to the pinnacle of success. Now Lecrae wants the same for others as he is
taking his message of hope and fatherhood
to inner city youth.”

For Lecrae to receive this honor on the
Higher Learning Tour is fitting, considering
that it’s a college tour, on which Lecrae
hoped to inspire the next generation.

“This tour allows me to be involved and
inspire some of the most impactful and
influential leaders of tomorrow,” Lecrae said. “College is where many of the world- changing thoughts and ideas are birthed. I
want my music and my message to help
inspire those ideas.”
