Kanye West Brings “Sunday Service” to Cody–drawing fans from far and wide

Kanye West introduced himself to the community of Cody in a big way yesterday.
The rapper, designer and born-again Christian, drew a crowd of hundreds Sunday at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Powwow Garden. The “Sunday Service” was free to the public, and fans young and old stood in line for hours just to be a part of the event.
Members of West’s entourage say the Sunday Services happen around the country, wherever Kanye decides. Last week the service was in Atlanta, Georgia – another one took place at the Adidas headquarters in Portland, Oregon. The service in Cody featured an 80-member choir that flew in to Cody Sunday morning, with participants from all around the country.
While Kanye himself was at the Service at the Powwow Gardens, he was not on the microphone – rather, he stayed at the center of the circle of singers, silently observing.
Fans from around the country were in attendance at the event. Several student from BYU–including Brian Kekauoha–drove through the night–arriving at 1:30 in the morning–just to experience the event tied to West.
Despite the late notice of the event–officials at the Center said the event went smoothly.
West and his wife, Kim Kardashian, recently purchased Monster Lake Ranch just outside of Cody.
