Kanye West may not be hitting the Coachella stage this year but will share his music with the masses in his own way, holding his first “Sunday Service” session this weekend in Los Angeles.

The new series—which West’s wife, Kim Kardashian-West, teased last week on Instagram—will consist of rapper DJ Kid Capri and singer Tony Williams revamping some of West’s biggest hits with the help of a gospel choir. Songs will include “Heard ‘Em Say,” “Father Stretch My Hands,” “Reborn” and “Ghost Town” reworked by the choir while ‘Ye himself leads.


In addition to taking us back to his “Jesus Walks” days, West defended fellow Chicago native R. Kelly, who has been in the spotlight since the release of Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly.  West also defended deceased pop star Michael Jackson, who will soon be the focus of Sundance documentary Losing Neverland.

“They just gonna pull up full documentaries on ’em, and then they gonna come with the Michael documentary. We can enjoy all they music all we want,” West said, according to Hip Hop Wired. “I thought I wasn’t gonna go there today, but because if we going to tear down one artist, let’s go ahead and take the da Vincis outta the Louvre while we’re at it, let’s take down all the art.”
