Kanye West’s Choir Pays Tribute To Virgil Abloh

Kanye West, an American rapper, used part of his Sunday sermon to pay respect to Virgil Abloh, his long-time creative director, who died of cancer.

Ye’s Sunday Service choir performed a performance of Adele’s “Easy on Me,” the album’s chart-topping main track. Shortly after Ye shared the link on his Instagram Story, the performance was momentarily live streamed.

“I know your love runs like a river/ And I could wash myself in it forever/ I know there is hope in these waters/ But I can’t bring myself to swim/ When I am drowning in my sin,” they sung in a rewritten opening verse.

“Take it easy on me, father,” I say. On the rewritten “Easy on Me” chorus, Ye’s choir harmonized. “I’m still your child/ And I’d like a chance to feel your affection.”

The screen stated, “In loving memory of Virgil Abloh, Donda’s creative director.” Abloh, who most recently served as Louis Vuitton’s men’s artistic director, died following a two-year struggle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare and severe illness. He was 41 years old at the time.
