Kanye West and the Sunday Service Choir teamed up with VOUS Church to perform at Bayfront Park in Miami ahead of the Super Bowl where in between songs he told the audience that many mainstream record contracts forbid artists from saying Jesus’ Name.

Several hip-hop celebrities attended West’s Sunday Service, including Fat Joe, N.O.R.E. and Quavo.

“God using us to show off, to show God is better than the devil,” West told the crowd, referring to the successes of his latest albums, Jesus Is King and Jesus Is Born.

“The devil took all the producers, the musicians, the designers. He moved us all out to Hollywood, moved us all out to New York. Chasing gold statues. Literally signing a contract and selling our souls,” the Chicago native continued.

West then revealed that many of the artists he worked with while creating Jesus Is King were relieved to freely say the Name of Jesus because of the way their agreements are set up in the industry.

“They got contracts out there that say, ‘you can’t say Jesus.’ When we were working on this album, people were coming to the studio just to say ‘Jesus’ as loud as they wanted to. You can say Jesus in ‘Ye studio,” he declared.
