Once again, everyone was surprised by Kanye West. Probably everyone will have to get used to the fact that Kim’s husband is a Gospel performer. Ok, ok, I believe it’s all true and real. Kanye West’s new album Emanuel a great surprise to the Christian audience.
Kanye West and Sunday Service Choir proceeded with his practice of releasing brand-new Christian songs on Christmas Day this year with a surprise launch of a Christmas album called Emmanuel.
The five-song job follows up West’s 2019 vacation launch, Jesus is Born, which escalated to No. 1 on the gospel charts.
Emmanuel is specified in the Bible as “God with us.”
“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Matthew 1:23)
The musical composition is consisted of old and also Latin passionate songs. The EP is only 12 mins in size and also was written and also exec produced by West.
Emmanuel was carried out by the Sunday Service Choir total with a choral ambiance. Similar to Jesus Is King, the brand-new album claims to be the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. This has a lot to do with West’s “born again” story.
West is known as a fashion innovator and singer. But much has changed in 2019. He started his Sunday Service occasions including a gospel choir that reimagined mainstream songs with Christian verses. The “Jesus Walks” rap artist became a pious Christian throughout this creative process and also took a trip with his choir worldwide to share his newfound confidence.
Many had the unexpected news that Billboard named West the Top Gospel Artist of 2020.
West also repeated his 2019 accomplishment with his album Jesus is King. The album, launched in 2019, was the entertainer/fashion mogul’s very first gospel album. At the time, Jesus Is King covered the Gospel Albums, Christian Albums, and also the all-genre Billboard 200 charts. The 27-minute long album has now spent more than a year at No. 1 and also took the top Billboard position once again for 2020’s Top Gospel Albums.
