    Kanye West marked one year of hosting Sunday Service on Skid Row in Los Angeles. The "Jesus Is King" artist chose downtown LA's Union Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter that offers foot and spiritual guidance to those in need, to host the special service and share a short message saying he wants to end homelessness around the world. “A lot of times people say, ‘Thank you Ye for Sunday Service.’ I’m saying thank God. This thing saved my life,” West said while singing "Closed On Sunday," a song referencing Chick-fil-A and family values. “This thing was an alternative to opioids....

    Kanye West recently aired his views about his wife Kim Kardashian's skin tight Met Gala dress and although she rebuffed him at the time, it seems like she's given it some thought and is coming round to his way of seeing things. The reality TV star told The Cut that she's had an "awakening" about her clothes choices and nudity in general. In addition to her husband's opinion of what she wears, it seems raising four young children is also giving her some food for thought. It goes even further than that too, as she even owned up to being...

    Score another one for Wagon Train, the figurative movement away from California by its most productive and creative citizens. Pop superstar and tennis shoe mogul Kanye West has given all indications of pulling up stakes and setting into less restrictive and less costly Cody, Wyoming.  He's bought two large properties there, and he and his wife, Kim Kardashian, have been reportedly checking the schools for their four children. According to an interesting eclectic collection of stories and links by the PanAm Post, it's the same reason a lot of Californians are leaving — the one-party blue state's execrable business climate: During his interview, West...

    Kanye West's surprise visit with his Sunday Service choir to two Harris County jails in Houston, Texas was an "egregious" violation of the U.S. Constitution, an atheist group complains. Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, whose district is in Houston, called it a "very cool move" by the "Jesus Walks" rapper, but the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) was particularly angered by the "Christian" message relayed from the newly born-again believer's songs from his new release, "Jesus Is King," The gospel-rap album debuted No. 1 on the Billboard charts. "It is no excuse that Kanye West is famous," FFRF attorney Andrew Seidel...

    HOUSTON — Kanye West and his choir of 100 singers pulled off a pair of performances inside two Harris County jails on Friday afternoon. Three days later, inmates and Harris County Sheriff's Office employees are still talking about it. "It’s a tremendous impact.

Chaplaincy program. Each performance spanned 45 minutes. About 400 male inmates witnessed one show and 100 females inmates were moved...

    On Sunday, Kanye West took to Twitter to announce an opera. It’s titled, “Nebuchadnezzar” and will be performed at the Hollywood Bowl on November 24th, at 4pm. The announcement notes, “Music with Sunday Service, Peter Collins & Infinities Song*” As of right now, we don’t know what this opera will entail. The most obvious question some may have, though, is: why Nebuchadnezzar? Overall, one macro takeaway from the story of Nebuchadnezzar is this: you may not think God had anything to do with your success until one day you realize God had everything to do with your success. After the...

    Rapper Kanye West spit it through the razor wire on Friday with two secret performances at the Harris County Jail. "This is a mission, not a show," he told the jailhouse crowd repeatedly. Men in orange put their hands up and smiled as they watched the singer and his gaggle of dancers, wearing navy jail-like scrubs for the show. Looking down from the second tier, men pressed up against the glass as they listened to hits from his gospel-themed Jesus is King album, according to video released by the Harris County Sheriff's Office. After kicking off with one performance for...

    Much buzz has surrounded the recent profession of faith by hip-hop artist Kanye West. We’re fascinated by his outspoken desire to share that faith with the world. In dramatic fashion, the star announced that grace had totally transformed him. He said that it was now his duty to use his platform to glorify God and bring others to Him. Once defined by his vulgarity and opulence, the star said he will use his widely influential platform for better purposes. This might shock many. But this star’s Damascus-road experience bears great similarities to revivals and awakenings we’ve seen before. Which raises...
