Kanye West has a change of plans.
A few days prior, reports surfaced that West was set to join Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church service in honor of Easter Sunday. On Saturday (April 11), however, TMZ reported that the father of four pulled the plug due to safety concerns regarding COVID-19. The media outlet explained that West was reportedly not happy once everything was laid out and questioned the safety of his choir, which consists of more than 80 people. Shortly after his change of plans, a Miami-based church confirmed in a statement that the Life of Pablo spitter is set to broadcast pre-recorded content with his team.
“Join us for Easter Services at VOUS via Church Online. With a gospel sermon by Pastor Rich, new music by VOUS Worship and exclusive prerecorded content with Kanye West and the Sunday Service Choir,” a statement for VOUS Church read.
This isn’t the first time that West has looked out for others during the pandemic. Last month, the Chicago native donated to Chicago and Los Angeles charities to help feed kids and elders who are affected by COVID-19.
“Today when I got that call, that Kanye West wanted to help the elderly in Chicago and he chose his hometown in the Southside, his old neighborhood, I was beyond words,” Josephine Wade, leader of We Women Empowered foundation, said. “These people being given this gift, literally of life, are not going to believe that one of the world’s greatest young visionaries and this wise man stepped up to the plate and chose to help our work, bringing help and healing through my efforts as the ‘mother’ of this city. I was so excited today that I was weak trying to take in what has happened through Mr. West to feed these seniors. We have been on the battlefield for a long time and it couldn’t get any better than it did today!”
