The Yeezy-organized event is called “Sunday Service” and was held at the Hollywood Cemetery in Los Angeles. The service started at 3:00 pm (PT), but not accessible to the public—that is, unless you received an email or were invited by Kanye himself. At one point in time, it was rumored that the event could’ve been used for a possible album listening party for his upcoming project—but was confirmed as a live-streamed concert.
“This here is a church congregation without walls,” he said. “This is the first of many services.”
Kanye West has been talking about his new album DONDA, but yesterday at the Forum in Los Angeles, he had more important things to talk about. The 40-year old rapper wore a white suit and was surrounded by an audience of people dressed all-in-white as well.
Kanye put on a moving set for his fans—which included run throughs of Donda cuts like “Come to Life,” “Hurricane,” “Pure Souls” and children choir spin on “Jesus Lord.”
During his performance, Justin Bieber harmonized during “Come to Life” and freestyled over a rendition of Bill Withers’ “Hurricane.” He also took on some verses from Haunted and wore an all white outfit for the first time. Throughout JB’s set he spoke about faith while surrounded by singers who later broke out in Donda cuts like ‘Believe What I Say.’
The Biebs put on quite show at this year’s Global Goals event as well!
