Apparently this Sunday is Easter. Or maybe it’s Monday. I dunno, I’m no theologist. Alas, because of the pandemic, many will not be gathering for Easter egg hunts, family dinners, or church services. But that won’t stop millionaire televangelist Joel Osteen, a man revered for his giving spirit in times of crisis, from broadcasting Easter Sunday service out of his Houston megachurch.
And he’s gonna do it with a little help from his celebrity friends! TMZ says Joel’s good buddy Kanye West will perform in a virtual version of his own Sunday Service, Mariah Carey will sing Hero via webcam in tribute to medical professionals and first responders, and Tyler Perry plans to “deliver words of encouragement” (hopefully in full Madea drag).
Well, let’s all collectively thank Jesus that these celebs will be broadcasting remotely, because not even Joel’s massive megachurch could house both Mariah and Yeezy’s egos at the same time. The roof would pop off from the pressure. We don’t need any more death and destruction!
For now, there’s no word as to whether these performances will be live or pre-recorded, but, for Mariah’s sake, l hope it’s the latter. As fun as it would be to be blessed with a New Year’s Eve Part II, it might not be as enjoyable during a tribute to medical heroes. Those brave souls have suffered enough.
I’m most curious to see what a Kanye Sunday Service looks like when abiding by social distancing rules. Doesn’t the service usually consist of gospel choirs, seas of people, and a fleet of Kardashians recording the whole thing on their phones? Maybe Kanye has been preparing by self-isolating with dozens of fans and choirs in his Calabasas mansion. And, hey, maybe that means Kenny G will also make an appearance! Word is, he never made it out of that room.
