It seems Kanye West and Joel Osteen are going all in on their newly formed faith-based fellowship.
A few weeks ago, Ye brought his Sunday Service experience before a packed house at the famed pastor and televangelist’s Houston-founded Lakewood house of worship. The event reportedly broke records after it did big numbers online and four million viewers live-streamed the event across multiple platforms, according to TMZ.
On Thursday (Dec. 5), the outlet reported that Ye and Osteen are joining forces again for another event, but this time on a much bigger scale. Sources close to Ye say that he and Osteen are planning to jointly present a second collaborative ministerial experience on the New York stop of the televangelist’s “Night of Hope” worship series.
The event will reportedly take place at Yankee Stadium. Osteen will lead with a sermon while Kanye (presumably backed by his choir) will close out the stage with music. While this is Osteen’s first Yankee Stadium event with Ye, the 56-year-old has previously hosted his “Night of Hope” series at the ballpark three times. The rest of the details are still being ironed out, but per TMZ’s report, a date has already been set for May 2, 2020. The report also didn't state how much tickets for the event will cost, although tickets for past events have sold for about $15.
There was also no word on whether the event will be live-streamed similarly to the Chicagoan’s recent Nebuchandenzzar opera or their past joint event at Osteen’s megachurch. But would you tune in if it was? Who knows — Kanye might even live-tweet during the event, again.
