They must have been really moved. Kim Kardashian shared on her Instagram Story on May 20 that some guests cried during the most recent “Sunday Service” put on by her husband, Kanye West. “There’s so many videos from today’s Sunday Service I want to share with you guys,” she wrote. “The rain forced us inside but it was magical. No mics, no band, no speakers but it was perfect. Not a dry eye in the room today.”
Kim, 38, continued, “The choir sang Sia’s ‘Elastic Heart’ song and changed the words to a gospel song.” That certainly sounds interesting. Hey, whatever works for people spiritually, right?
Back in April, Kim explained, “Kanye started Sunday Service for healing for himself and his close friends and family. He had this vision of starting a church for a few years and it was magical seeing everyone else get to experience it. I’m so proud of you babe for doing exactly what’s in your heart. The choir and band work so hard and have so much fun! It’s so inspiring to watch.” So her Story updates on May 20 were not the first time she described the experience as “magical.”
People who don’t know much about the Kardashians may be surprised to learn that they are actually fairly religious. Kim’s dad, Robert Kardashian, was a Christian Armenian, and all of the Kardashian kids attended either a Presbyterian or Catholic school growing up. “We went to church every Sunday, religiously,” Kim’s sister Khloé Kardashian wrote in a Lenny letter back in 2016. “When we started getting older, my dad stopped going to church, but he still read the Bible every single day. Sundays then became about his bringing church and religion into our home. He would play gospel music — it had so much soul, and he loved that.”
Now, it seems like Kanye, 41, and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars want to share that soulful feeling with the rest of the world. An insider exclusively revealed to In Touch Weekly in April that when it comes to these “Sunday Services,” the rapper “wants to telecast it so the whole world can watch, and he wants Kim by his side. Kanye wants to spread the word. He says there’s a huge demand for the services, the musicians he assembles, and his message of peace and family, which he says is healing and uplifting.” If Kim’s description of the service is any indication, it certainly sounds like people are getting something out of the event.
