After delivering a spectacular Sunday Service to Inglewood, California last weekend, Kanye West made a last-minute announcement that the experience would be coming to Baton Rouge, Louisiana this Friday.

The open-air gospel service drew thousands to the lawns of Bethany Church, where West and his 80-strong choir opened with “Closed On Sunday” from his newly released album, Jesus Is King  He also performed a stirring rendition of his 2004 track, "Jesus Walks." Watch above.

According to WBRZ, the huge crowds could be seen from the interstate.

West performed with his children in tow, and later met with Baton Rouge locals while carrying his daughter Chicago.

While the service itself was free a $49.99 brunch ticket drew comparison to the Fyre Festival catering scandal.

It should be noted that the catering was organized by the promoter and was not affiliated with West or Sunday Service. According to a statement provided to the Daily Mail, “Lauryn’s Fine Catering has been contacted about the poor service and quality of food provided during the event as a paid vendor,” the statement began. “The catering company acknowledges it did not provide adequate food for ONE attendee and a social media post went viral.”
