Months later, Coachella offered Kanye something more fitting of a man who calls himself a God — a mountain. Only one date that mountain would be available to us: Easter Sunday at Coachella. West has been hosting weekly Sunday Services since early January The services themselves feature West as a rapper-turned-preacher in front of a live band and choir who are dressed in matching monochrome uniforms — reminiscent of Black Baptist congregations — alongside special guests and collaborators like Kid Cudi , Shake , Charlie Wilson , and others. The guest list is invite-only and star-studded. The vibes are half Hillsong — the super-church attended by celebrities like Justin Bieber and Kourtney Kardashian — half Rajneeshpuram , the intentional community set up in the hills of Oregon by the followers of the mystic Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh.

Kanye West's religious choir and prayer performance group Sunday Service has been popping up across the United States. The rapper, singer, songwriter, entrepreneur, fashion designer and potentially now preacher has held events in California, Ohio, Chicago, Miami, Georgia, Wyoming, Utah, Washington DC and even Coachella. It's essentially people gathering for song and prayer — so the hallmarks of a church — but it's not registered under the United States Code to make it an official one. West's wife, Kim Kardashian West, described it as more of a musical ministry and Christian service that talks about Jesus and God. For the time being, West doesn't seem to want to call it anything other than Sunday Service which he applied to have trademarked, BTW. He applied to build a "meditation structure" on his ranch near Cody, Wyoming. The application was denied after a last-minute change to the building plans that included a residential space.
