A week before the release of Kanye West‘s ninth studio album, Jesus Is King, Ye visited Jamaica for a special surprise Sunday Service – which also marks the movement’s first international performance. The performance inspired Kanye immensely, as he even opted to include the “Welcome to Jamrock” intro and a few of the Jamaican gospel songs in the recent Sunday Service at The Forum in Los Angeles, California to celebrate the album.
The service, which took place in the historic Emancipation Park and attracted persons from all walks of life. Two of our favourite Jamaican photographers – Christian “Morphromous” Harris and Romario “LYNCH” captured the event in a beautiful way, sharing a visual story of the creative congregation that came out to witness an inspiring performance from one of the most creative (and controversial) geniuses of our time.

In case you missed it, here’s the full performance in all its God-given glory.
