Rapper-turned-gospel singer, Kanye West, has decided to spend the first anniversary of his Sunday Service gospel events not at a lavish hotel, but rather on the streets of Los Angeles. He took the celebrations to the Union Rescue Mission shelter in one of the poorest areas of LA, according to People magazine. Using this event as an opportunity to talk about the issue of homelessness, Kanye revealed that he had a solution to the problem.
Announcing that Sunday marked “one year of Sunday Service”, the Stronger star added, “We had no idea that we were gonna be here on the 52nd week… Thank God. This thing saved my life. This thing was an alternative to opioids, this thing was an alternative to pornography.”
The news comes after the Stronger hitmaker unveiled the album Jesus is Born on Christmas Day (25Dec19).
The 19-song gospel album is the first official release from the weekly gospel sermon he has been hosting since January (19). Jesus Is King, which debuted at the top of the charts in October and featured the service’s choir, was released under West’s name.
