Kanye West is bringing his Sunday Service to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee in January, as part of the Strength to Stand youth conference, according to the organization’s website.

The conference targets students from sixth grade through college and will feature a series of gospel performances. Knox News reports that West was only recently added to the roster after another performer was pulled. Scott Dawson, who founded the student conferences, told the news outlet how West became a headliner.

He explained that he reached out to a friend who had a connection to Kanye's inner circle: "He said, "I've got a crazy idea. Would you consider — I know a pastor who's mentoring a man by the name of Kanye West — would you be interested?'"

Dawson described being “shocked” when West called not long after and said he decided “after prayer and deliberation” to perform at the event. "Well, after picking myself off the floor, we had a conversation, and I realized that although this was a worldwide megastar, he was a brother in Christ."

Strength to Stand announced the news on November 21, and tickets quickly sold out. However, the conference posted this week that a limited number of seats have been added. Reservations are currently being taken for groups of four or more, children must be at least 12 years old to attend. The two-day conference is scheduled for January 18 to 20. For more information on registering, visit strengthtostand.com.
