Kanye West Is Planning to Go Virtual for Sunday Service on Easter

Kanye West isn’t letting the coronavirus pandemic stop him from holding Sunday Service on Easter.

To help make it happen, West is teaming up with VOUS Church lead pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr., who served as the officiator of the rapper’s marriage to Kim Kardashian in 2014.

On Sunday (April 12), the Miami-based church will broadcast “exclusive pre-recorded content with Kanye West and and the Sunday Service Choir” on its website and social media channels, according to an announcement on

Online services begin at 8 a.m. and will continue throughout the day. Spanish translations will be available on YouTube at 11 a.m.

Billboard has reached out to West’s representatives for additional information.

In addition to officiating Kanye and Kim’s Italian wedding, Wilkerson Jr. also preached during a Sunday Service gathering outside of Los Angeles in July.

West’s Sunday Service Choir was initially planning an Easter performance for televangelist Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church, but the rapper pulled the plug over safety concerns, TMZ reports. Osteen’s Easter special will include appearances by Mariah Carey and Tyler Perry.

Last year, West and his Sunday Service Choir brought a special Easter presentation to festival-goers at Coachella in Indio, Calif. Check out the recap of that performance here.
