Contrary to what most may not recognize right away, Kanye West loves God. From “Jesus Walks” to “Ultralight Beam” and more, Yeezy’s put his faith out there on a national platform. Most recently, with his weekly Sunday Service performances recorded in nature’s setting with a choir to support his renditions of all music (including but not limited to gospel and his own) to reflect love.
“We didn’t really have a name for it because it’s more of just a healing experience,” his wife, Kim Kardashian told Jimmy Kimmel Live when asked if the rapper had started a church.
There’s no prayers or sermon, but the family confirmed, “it’s Christian.” It’s a peaceful vibe where the music and its subject serve as a healer.
