Kanye West drops surprise project 'Emmanuel'

Last Christmas, the Kanye West-led gospel group, Sunday Service Choir, released its debut album Jesus Is Born. This December 25, West dropped a surprise EP titled Emmanuel, performed by the choir.


According to the release, the new project arrives as a "celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ." West executive produced and composed Emmanuel, which includes five tracks of ancient and Latin-inspired new compositions.


West cemented his recommitment to his religion with the launch of his Sunday Service gatherings, which delivered its first public performance during the second weekend of Coachella in 2019 (on Easter, April 21). Six months later, West dropped Jesus Is King, which summited the Top Gospel Albums and Top Christian Albums charts.
