In the midst or his long-shot third-party presidential campaign, Kanye West rebooted his Sunday Service series over the weekend on his Wyoming ranch. The rapper said all the appropriate safety precautions were followed during the first worship gathering from his gospel group during the COVID-19 lockdown.

“Praise God. We would like to thank our staff for making sure all Covid safety guidelines were followed today during Sunday Service at our West Mountains family ranch in Wyoming," West tweeted. "We are beyond blessed to be able to share the love of Christ through worship." The rapper shared video footage of the service, in which the choir, all dressed in matching burnt orange-colored outfits and standing in close proximity, without masks, could be heard singing praise in front of a gorgeous mountain background.

Wife Kim Kardashian West tweeted that, "For anyone wondering, Kanye’s team took every precaution to ensure the choir’s health and safety which is always top priority. It was filmed today without an audience. The music will be shared soon for anyone who could use a some uplifting."

Another video featured a pianist playing an upright with another stunning vista on display, which, like the choir footage, did not feature an audience for safety reasons. It was the first Sunday Service since an Easter Sunday appearance in April.
