Kanye West's ongoing musical sermon has become a spectacle of epic proportions.
Kanye West's ongoing Sunday Service recently reached an apex this past weekend, when Ye brought the tradition to the Coachella grounds. While the spectacle clearly captured the hearts and minds of many in attendance, it wasn't entirely clear how many settled down to witness the Service in action. Now, TMZ has revealed the scope of Kanye's pull, which found thousands upon thousands of festival-goers rallying to check out the early morning sermon.
The report, which was conveyed by "Coachella production sources," claims that organizers officially turned in a headcount. As it stands, fifty-thousand stood in attendance of Ye's biggest Sunday Service yet, including several prominent names. DMX, the Kardashian clan, Chance The Rapper, Kid Cudi, Donald Glover, Lizzo, and more came through to enjoy the show. And what a show it was. Kanye ultimately premiered a new single called "Water," which found him taking his falsetto to previously unexplored heights.
Clearly, Kanye West's eye for experimental concepts is nigh unparalleled, and there's no telling where the increasingly grandiose Sunday Service series might go. Congratulations to Ye for building something wholesome and organic. Hopefully, this energy can carry over to the impending Yandhi, if and when that should surface.
