It is always inspiring to see some of the greatest influencers in the world represent Christ on their platforms. If you have been following Good Gospel Playlist for some time, you may recall the famous Sunday Service Hip Hop Concert that captured the attention of music entertainment in America and hip-hop fans around the world. After spending time with friend and fellow artist Chance the Rapper, Kanye West reconnected with God through his relationship with Jesus. West felt compelled to share his faith on the stage and to offer an experience that would connect everyone to his love for God and gospel music.
Since the acclaimed Easter Sunrise service at world-renown Coachella Music Festival, West has channeled much of his new-found spiritual energy into his love of music and connection with people. Hollywood is talking about the on-going Sunday services that have been taking place for the greater part of 2019. Interviews with wife, Kim Kardashian-West and sisters, reveal what conspires at these services. While there is no element of teaching during these gatherings, it is an experience for all to come and connect with God through soul-stirring gospel music.
In the upcoming issue of Forbes magazine for August 2019, titled “Kanye’s Second Coming: Inside the Billion-Dollar Yeezy Empire”, West is featured on the front cover wearing a black hoodie in front of a black frame. He shares about the difficulties and blessings that God has walked him through in his career, bringing him to a more successful and healthier place in his life. In his in-depth profile, West references his diagnosis of bipolar disorder which placed him in the hospital for the latter part of his world tour in the year 2016.
“I’ll be working on home designs and looking at references from 3,000 years ago and reading the Old Testament at the same time so it’s like a soundtrack to the visuals, the shapes and the ideas we are creating. To a lot of my creative friends, I tell them the Bible is better than Pinterest. We can bring something into space and time we exist in while reflecting thousands of years of truth.” Kanye West, Forbes Interview (August 2019)
Kanye West shares in his Forbes interview of the one thing that has gotten him through the trials and tribulations he has faced, from being millions of dollars in debt to the suffering from mental illness. He admits to his submission to Christ by stating that “being in service to Christ, the radical obedience” has brought him through to experience the true blessings in a Christ-centered and Christ-focused life.
Along with wife and TV reality star, Kim Kardashian West, the two are committed to raising their family with reverence and faith in God and His great blessing through Jesus.

Sinach has had an incredible journey from a local church singer to international gospel superstar. The multi-award winner has over 200 songs to her name and is responsible for such hits such as ‘I know who I am’ and ‘WayMaker’. Her song ‘This Is Your Season’ won the Song of the Year award in 2008. Sinach’s music has been performed in churches all over the world.
With all this success, comes great responsibility. Creating uplifting and moving music for millions of fans around the word can take its toll. As a mega star, striking the perfect balance between stardom and spirituality is challenging to say the least. In an intimate one on interview, Damilola Okeke, of Premier Christian Radio, sat down with Gospel superstar Sinach, and discussed the nitty gritty issues of love, life and her relationship with Jesus Christ.
Before Sinach rose to be one of Nigeria’s mega gospel stars, she was serving in the church. Her music was mostly shared within community. When asked on how she felt before her rise to fame, Sinach said she was grateful as a servant of the church and simply felt “content” to share her music on the platform of the church.
“When you’re content with where God has placed you, he gives you more”
Sinach went on to express how she has dealt with success by not being anxious and enjoying every point in the journey of her success.
These were some great life lessons that the starlet has learned, and she has her close-knit family to thank for that.
“I have learned to trust God, how to move, not to move ahead of him, because when you move ahead of him you are going to get into trouble”
That’s not all she got to thank her family for. A lot of her musical inspiration came from the home. Her father would often play Anita Baker, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and many others. When Sinach met Pastor Chris however, her musical direction took quite a turn. Sinach recalled a sermon by Pastor Chris about the holy spirit and salvation and said:
“Not only did I get born again, I got filled with the holy spirit…on the same day”.
Since that life-changing sermon, Sinach turned into the woman we know today, a Gospel superstar.
