Kanye West Sunday Service

Take it to church but keep it inside this Easter. Kanye West’s gospel imprint Sunday Service gives us a two-hour performance of their gospel takes on R&B and hip-hop hits. The performance takes place at The Forum and includes over twenty songs. The choir is directed and led by Jason White, the former music director of the massive West Angeles Church.
