After bringing his Sunday Service to an actual church last week, Kanye West held a special ceremony in Dayton, Ohio yesterday “in support of the victims and survivors of the Dayton mass shooting.” Nine people were killed and 27 others were wounded in the shooting that took place on August 4.

While wearing special Dayton memorial T-shirts, Kanye and his choir played gospel-inspired versions of his songs, including "Jesus Walks."

During the show, West brought out Dave Chappelle as a surprise guest, who was in Dayton to hold his own block party featuring Chance the Rapper, Teyana Taylor and more, in honor of the shooting victims. The comedian told the congregation, “Listen, we've been through a tough time, there have been tornadoes, there's been Klan rallies, there's been shooting – but we're still here, we're still strong. ... The best way that we can honor our fallen is by getting up better than we were before.”
