Sunday Service from Coachella
… Spiritual, Emotional & Quite a Show!!!
11:50 AM PT — Kanye’s Service has wrapped up … after an upbeat and emotional couple hours with a lot of help from his friends.
The final hour featured DMX giving a prayer, Chance the Rapper performing “Ultralight Beam” and a huge rendition of “Jesus Walks.” At one point it looked like several members of the choir, including Kanye, were moved to tears.

Kylie and Travis were apparently feeling it too … and were moved to a little PDA. Happy Easter, everybody!
11:05 AM PT — Though the Service kicked off at 9 AM, Kanye wasn’t revealed on Coachella’s fisheye lens stream ’til about 9:50, and he didn’t get on the mic for another hour after that … when he performed “All Falls Down.” He followed it up by premiering his new song, “Water,” with Ty Dolla $ign.
He’s also rocking purple hair.
Not that Ye hasn’t been busy the whole time — he’s been dancing, playing piano and directing the choir … while tens of thousands of festival attendees gather around. The show is still going too.
Other highlights so far include the choir and band performing “Beautiful Morning,” “Power,” “Blood on the Leaves” and Stevie Wonder‘s “As.” Teyana Taylor and Chance the Rapper also performed, and celebs spotted in the crowd include Kim, Khloe, Kendall, Kylie and Travis Scott, and La La Anthony.Kanye West is ready to preach his version of the gospel for all the folks at Coachella … and TMZ will be streaming live when it begins at around 9 AM PT.
Ye will host his Sunday Service, which has become a thing in L.A., attracting lots of celebs. It’s more music than preaching, which may be a reason why some not-so-religious people have become believers. Kim Kardashian West was getting the family ready to attend bright and early.
A brand new stage was set up in the campground for Ye, and everyone with a wristband is welcome. Event producers are expecting upwards of 100,000 people. Take that, Joel Osteen.
The Sunday Service will feature a massive choir, orchestra and, we’re told, other surprises. In weeks past he’s performed both gospel songs as well as some of his hit songs.
