Praise Yeezus! More Than 50,000 People Attended Kanye West's Sunday Service
According to TMZ, Coachella production sources counted over 50,000 people in attendance at the event, which was also live-streamed on YouTube.
Among the famous faces in the crowd were West’s wife Kim Kardashian West and her sisters Khloé Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and her boyfriend Travis Scott. West’s friends Chance the Rapper, Kid Cudi, 2 Chainz, Teyana Taylor, Donald Glover, Lizzo and DMX were also spotted among the guests.
Many took center stage for the service, though it was West’s 5½-year-old daughter North who was once again a scene stealer as she was seen dancing on the hill.
He first announced the Coachella appearance in a video posted to Kardashian West’s Twitter on March 31, in which he spoke over the intercom system of what appeared to by a privately charted plane.
“Attention 737 passengers, we’d like to make an announcement that we just booked another show,” West said in a video posted to Twitter by wife Kim Kardashian West. “We will be doing Sunday Service sunrise at Coachella.”
Kardashian West has praised her husband’s service. “It’s honestly more like a healing experience for my husband,” she previously told Elle. “It’s just music; there’s no sermon. It’s definitely something he believes in — Jesus — and there’s a Christian vibe. But there’s no preaching. It’s just a very spiritual Christian experience.”
