Kanye West is seemingly looking to spread his gospel influence since he began his Sunday Service meetings — which his wife, Kim Kardashian West, describes as a “spiritual Christian experience”.
Just recently, Pop star Gwen Stefani said she was moved and brought to tears by Kanye West’s worship remake of her hit song, “Don’t Speak”.
West’s choir performed the remake at his weekly Sunday Service this month and the Gwen Stefani was moved that the hip-hop trailblazer would choose to remake her 1995 single and transform it into a prayer with a new tag, declaring, “Lord Speak.”
She shared her excitement via twitter;
“My heart is so full hearing this incredible version of Don’t Speak/ Lord Speak…
I’m in shock hearing this song turned into a worship song at Kanye’s Sunday Service, I literally started crying, ‘Please send me whole version Kanye’.”
The re-imagined lyrics read,
“God loves you more than you could ever know/Lord speak, we know your words bring healing/ the pain is real,
we’re feeling/please help us cuz it hurts/Lord speak, to every situation/you know just what we facing/ please help us cuz it hurts.”
The Chicago native has filed a trademark application for the term “Sunday Service” with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office this month.
Public records also show that it was issued through the company Mascotte Holdings, which also filed trademarks for his fashion brands “Yeezus” and others.
Some have questioned whether West is promoting Christ or himself at the weekly exclusive meetings.
Kanye West explained on the season finale of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” in June:
“I had the idea of making a church before but I really was sketching it out. Then in 2019, I was like I’m not letting a Sunday go by without making this,”
They began the meeting in a “James Turell inspired” circular dome but because of how rapidly attendance increased they had to move Sunday Service outdoors.
