Kanye West is bringing Sunday Service to Joel Osteen’s church.
The rapper will take the stage at famed pastor Joel Osteen’s popular weekend ritual on Sunday, Nov. 17. According to TMZ, Ye and Joel have become friends and talk regularly, especially following Kanye’s newfound connection to God.
Kanye is scheduled to appear at the televangelist’s 11 a.m. service at Lakewood Church in Houston. Kanye will have a conversation with Joel at the pulpit that will last between 20 and 30 minutes. Kanye and his traveling Sunday Service choir will return later to perform during Joel’s nighttime service.
Joel wants his congregation of 45,000 and his TV audience of 10 million to hear how Kanye has overcome significant adversity in his life. The service will also broadcast live on SiriusXM.
“Kanye used to be about nothing greater than himself. Now it’s all about a higher power,” says a source.
Kanye’s gospel-rap album Jesus Is King debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, becoming his ninth consecutive chart-topper. As part of his religious rebirth, he has vowed to not perform his secular music in its original form going forward.
