Kanye dropped the trailer for "Jesus Is King" on last Friday. To the strains of a choir, the trailer zooms in on the stairs of James Turrell’s famous Arizona artwork, the Roden Crater, a project to which West donated $10 million to finish.
The new film is an outgrowth of West’s now famous Sunday Services, which the rapper began hosting earlier this year. In September, for instance, West was visibly moved as he welcomed fellow Chicago crooner Chance The Rapper to an outdoor Sunday Service held in their hometown.
Kanye West is seen standing on stage in the video with his head in the palm of one hand, as a choir sings the lyrics to his song, “Ultralight Beam.”
