Kanye West is no stranger to religious references in his music, but his most recent works of art theoretically place him next to a pastor, over and above a holy being. In December 2018, he tweeted about rekindling his relationship with God after recording with Chance the Rapper. The following month, Kim Kardashian West released footage of her husband recording gospel music with a full-blown choir, in what would soon turn into Sunday Service.
Since then, short videos have circulated on Twitter and Instagram of the private, invite-only sessions. Sometimes featuring the West children and other celebrities, Sunday Service appears to be an exclusive religious ceremony with no sermon, but instead, hours of praise and worship. West remixes church songs with the help of a large choir, moving attendees on a spiritual level often recognized in a Christian church.
