Rapper Kanye West held an outdoor “worship service” on Sunday at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Wyoming.
The marketing manager who reserved the space said nearly 4,000 people attended.
West started “Sunday Service” in his home, but took it on the road earlier this year. The service has appeared on Easter Sunday at the Coachella music festival, as well as in Portland, Chicago, and Atlanta.
This past Sunday’s service was free and open to the public, but little notice was given for the event. The venue was contacted on Friday.
“It was a very spur of the moment thing for literally everyone,” said Levi Meyer, PR and marketing manager for the BBCW. “With that in mind and thinking about how big the turnout really was, that just shows how much people wanted to see a special event like this.”
The service included a choir with around 80 singers and featured 14 pieces of both worship and secular songs, including reworked versions of No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” and Nirvana’s “Come as You Are” and “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
