Thousands expected to attend Kanye West's 'Sunday Service' Friday night
BATON ROUGE – The city is playing host to pop culture phenoms this week – musician Lizzo and Kanye West.
Lizzo is recording a music video with Southern’s Human Jukebox.
Kanye West will hold his “Sunday Service” show at Bethany South Friday.
“Sunday Service” has become a social media sensation.
Promoters said of Friday’s event in Baton Rouge: “Sunday Service is the testimony of Kanye’s journey through Christianity, backed by a powerful 80-piece chorus and band ensemble. Not only has Kanye composed a breathtaking performance, but it also served as the muse for his latest album Jesus is King. Enter with an open heart and be ready to have your spirit uplifted.”
