News: KANYE WEST WANTS TO START A CHURCH TO ‘HELP PEOPLE WHO NEED SUPPORT’
*Kanye West’s Easter Sunday Service at the second weekend of Coachella left him so inspired that he is reportedly considering starting his own church.
“Say what you want about Kanye, but he really does want to help people who need support,” one source tells PEOPLE, noting that West is aiming to “share his journey.”
“He understands brokenness and the need for healing, probably more than most people. He believes in the healing powers of music, but also believes that God can step in and heal people’s brokenness and their issues.”
Ye’s Sunday Service at Coachella drew a massive crowd (see the Instagram photo embed above). The event was livestreamed and DMX even dropped in to deliver a prayer.
One festival-goer is now selling small bags of “Holy Grass” picked from the ground of the event on eBay for $120, according to a PEOPLE report.
“GRASS FRESH CUT BLESSED BY THE SOUND OF KANYE’S VOICE AND KID CUDI’S HUMMING,” reads the item’sdescription reads (see the photo below).
West “has talked about starting his own church, and what exactly that would be,” said the source but “no official plans” are in development.
Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, previously noted during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel that “There’s, actually, there’s no praying,” during Kanye’s Sunday Service. “There’s no sermon. There’s no word. It’s just music and it’s just a feeling.”
She described the Sunday Service as a “healing experience.”
“He has talked about starting his own church, and what exactly that would be,” said PEOPLE tipster. “It wouldn’t be the traditional, 3-hymns-and-a-sermon thing. Instead, it would be a way to point people to Jesus through the arts and through a community of people who love and care for each other. He also wants his kids to be raised in faith, and the best way for him to do that is to live out his faith.”
West has been delivering his Sunday Service weekly since the beginning of the year
