The service was shown on Coachella’s YouTube live stream during the second weekend of the festival through drone footage and close-up shots of the rapper and his choir shown through a circular frame, like a telescope or a pinhole camera.
Many praised West for his artistic vision and bringing faith, and more specifically black faith, to Coachella, a festival many feel is predominately attended by whites.
Others though, just weren’t sure what they were watching and found the performance to be a little too cult-like for their tastes.
Here’s a look at some of the reaction on Twitter:
Say what you may about Kanye, but a black style Sunday choir performance on Easter Sunday at a predominantly White festival gets a point in my book…

This Kanye show so far looks like a POV of what it'd be like to be Mike Wazowski at Coachella

Kanye West is THE ONLY global artist living through the spirit and using his music to spread love.
His Easter Sunday service at Coachella will go down history as the only Christian artist who has dared to bring the church to the stage and praise Jesus

Beyonce brought black homecoming to Coachella last year and Kanye brought black church this year

Kanye can be super frustrating at times, but when he injects Christian faith, language, imagery, & sounds into his music I’m endlessly fascinated. #SundayService
