SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – Rapper Kanye West brought his “Sunday Service” to Utah.
The Gateway announced “Sunday Service” – Kanye West featuring The Sunday Service Collective for Saturday, October 5 just hours before the event.
Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski alluded to the upcoming concert with a tweet warning residents about traffic with General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and other events including a “potentially large event at The Gateway.”
That didn’t stop the crowd from showing up. The show started at noon but thousands flocked to the Gateway Plaza hours before for a chance to see Kanye.
The Grammy-winning artist recently held his outdoor worship service in Cody, Wyoming where he owns a ranch. The concert attracted thousands of people.
West performed with a choir of 80 singers. The music included 14 choir pieces focused on worship and nontraditional hymns, as well as reworked versions of songs by No Doubt and Nirvana.
