Celebrity Interviews

Joel Osteen, Victoria Osteen and Sway Speak on Hope for Our Generation

There were a lot of great things happening as the Sway in the Morning crew took to Detroit last week but one event stood above the rest, Generation Hope with Joel Osteen. It’s always great to see the best hyenas in any given city but at the same time it’s equally as (if not more) important to make sure the people are being touched on a deeper level as well. Being a rapper is just a job, what about the person?

Our special guest Joel Osteen and his wife Victoria, made the trip to Detroit as well to put together the Generation Hope project. What is it exactly?

In conjunction with Pastor Joel’s America’s Night of Hope stadium event, and in partnership with local community organizations, Generation Hope Project® volunteers travel to select cities to participate in multiple service projects over two days.

Now in its fifth year, Generation Hope Project volunteers have worked with 32 partner organizations, donated 12,000 volunteer hours, and blessed countless families and individuals in four major metropolitan areas.

Watch the full interview above as the Osteens talk with Sway before they filled Comerica Park with Hope, Love and Faith.


Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
