The musician arrived in the city, survived the tragedy, with Kim and two children – daughter North and son Saint.
On August 3, at the same time in two cities – Dayton and El Paso – there was a mass shooting, which killed 31 people and injured about 60. Five days later, the president and first lady of the United States arrived to visit the victims . And last Sunday, August 25, the Kardashian West family visited Dayton: Kanye, Kim, their 5-year-old daughter North and 3-year-old son Saint. The rapper spent Sunday service there to commemorate the victims of the tragedy. It was attended by several thousand local residents, as well as celebrities: stand-up comedian Dave Schappell, actor Chris Rock, comedian Michael Che and musician Fonsworth Bentley.
The service was held in an indoor tent in the RiverScape MetroPark City Park. As a sign of sorrow, Kim and the children preferred clothes not black but white, while Kanye was wearing a T-shirt on which the Sunday Service Choir was written, and the State of Ohio (Ohio State) on the back . West, along with the church choir, performed their hits Jesus Walks and Ultralight Beam, after which he addressed the visitors:
We have come to express our love for you and to share the love of Jesus today with all of you.
Recall that in early January, Kanye launched a new music project “Sunday Service”, in which he conducts closed concerts to the accompaniment of the gospel choir.Performances are stylized as a church service. In addition to his own songs, West also performs religious music. He had already held similar services at the Coachella festival during Easter and in Los Angeles , and also decided to open his own church.
