In a video clip on his Instagram, his nutritionist tells the camera, “Another successful day for Jelly, just passed the two-week mark, so far this year, he’s lost 23 pounds.” Jelly captioned the video clip collage, “Mama bear did her first meet and greet – Weight loss update and songwriting in St Louis – for the 15th sold out show in a row on the Backroad Baptism tour — show 15/44 – let’s goooooo.”
Several fans responded to his post, with one writing, “You’re doing amazing work. God has big plans for you to spread the word.

Jelly recently took some time out of his current 2023 “Backroad Baptism Tour” to visit inmates at a correctional facility in Virginia after the inmates asked him to come as a “favor.” Jelly posted a video clip of the experience on his Instagram.
He captioned the clip, “Always spread love when we can- thank you to the Harp program at the Chesterfield County Jail in Virginia for allowing me to come share some songs with the men and women incarcerated- your program is what is needed in these jails more than anything.”
In the video, Jelly tells the inmates gathered around him, “I heard y’all needed a favor,” as they chanted his name. He said of the video they released singing his song “Need A Favor,” asking him to visit, “I just wanna say I’m a fan. I was watching on TikTok before y’all started calling for me.”
He told the inmates, “I don’t think y’all even realize the impact that y’all are having. Whenever I was in here, we didn’t have a program like this. We didn’t have people like us come talk to us.”
