Justin Bieber Gives an Emotional Performance During Kanye West’s Sunday Service
Kanye West and Justin Bieber have both been on very public spiritual journeys. On Sunday, their paths crossed when Bieber performed during West’s popular Sunday Service.
In a video posted on his Instagram page, the pop star is seen belting out “Never Would Have Made It,” a gospel music classic written by Pastor Marvin Sapp. In the un-captioned video, Bieber stands in the middle of a room as he offers his heartfelt rendition. At times, he appears to be reading the lyrics from his phone.
The audience and choir members respond with excitement and encouragement as he sings, “I’m stronger, I’m wiser, I’m better, much better. When I look back over all you brought me through, I can see that you were the one I held on to.”
People have responded on social media to the multi-Grammy award-winning singer’s emotional video by reposting it. “Justin Bieber took it to church,” wrote one Twitter user. The Shade Room even commented on how Beiber “was feeling the spirit…”

West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, posted additional video clips of Bieber singing in her Instagram story. In one clip Bieber and West embrace each other while West appears to be smiling.
This is not the first time Bieber performed Sapp’s famous song during a worship experience. In August of last year Bieber sang the ballad, along with Israel Houghton’s “To Worship You I Live,” when he led praise and worship at his church.
At the time, Houghton responded to Bieber on Instagram expressing the power of worship.
“Wow…When one of the biggest pop stars in the world sings an anthem you wrote, it says this: Worship is powerful and it can overcome anxiety, fear, condemnation, shame, past and present,” Houghton wrote. “I so admire someone like @justinbieber being so open about his journey- and being willing to work through it within the Presence of God. I love everything about this. #WorshipAnywhere”

Sang at church last night. God is pulling me through a hard season. Having trust in Jesus at your worst times is the absolute hardest. But he is faithful to complete what he started. I also want to thank my wife for being such a huge support in my life through this season.. it says in the bible count it ALL JOY when you face trials of various kinds. Sounds insane considering when u face trials u feel terrible. But if we are grateful and worship god for what we do have in that season there is so much power in that… whatever pain you are going through just keep telling yourself THIS WONT LAST! Love you guys we in this together
