Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has announced he will be bringing a distinct gospel twist to this year's Coachella music festival. Announcing his "Sunday Service" show on a recent flight, he took the opportunity to reveal that the gig would coincide with Easter Sunday—something that will likely excite his churchgoing fan base.

West's music has, at times, contained a deep spiritual meaning. In the opening track of his 2016 album The Life of Pablo, a song titled, "Ultralight Beam," he declared, "Yes, God/ We don't want no devils in the house, God/ We want the Lord (Yes, Jesus)/ And that's it." The song featured well-known gospel artist Kirk Franklin.

West has opened up about his own faith journey in the past.
