He turned Ginuwine's "So Anxious" into a gospel song, as well as "Father Stretch my Hands."
The choirs also performed “How Excellent.”
A solemn West took the mic to share some of his faith walk, saying being closer to Jesus Christ also brought him closer to his family.
“I’ve seen him work miracles in my life,” said West. He also said he’s seen everything the devil can do to lead one astray.
Dane Smith of Atlanta, who goes to another church, said he received a text from his roommate about the visit.
“I wasn’t expecting him to give his personal revelations as much as he did,” said Smith, a big fan of West’s music. “I thought it was just going to be music. I wasn’t expecting that but I liked it.”

On Sunday, combined choirs and musicians numbered 600 people, according to a New Birth spokesman.
The event also drew some star power.
There were murmurs of excitement and gasps as T.I. (Tip), Tameka "Tiny" Harris, Jermaine Dupri, 2 Chainz, Chris Tucker and Nelly.
This weekend in Atlanta was a major one for top-notch music performers with Music Midtown and the Revolt Summit, which also provided networking and performance opportunities to young and upcoming artists.

The discussions between New Birth and West’s team had been going on for several days and was confirmed on Friday.
There was an existing relationship between West’s camp and New Birth, according to a church spokesman.
West’s decision to do a popup worship service at New Birth probably raised a few eyebrows.
Bryant, the pastor, has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration and even encouraged those in attendance to register to vote to “evict some people from the White House.”
West, though, has visited President Donald Trump in the White House and been photographed wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap.
In an appearance last week on ABC’s daytime show “The View,” West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, was asked about the Sunday Service events.

“Kanye started this, I think, just to heal himself and it was a really personal thing … and it was just friends and family,” Kim Kardashian West said. “And he has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ.”
She added, “It is a Christian service, like a musical ministry; they talk about Jesus and God.”
Caesar Ojile, a Peachtree City-based music producer and director, said the experience was “pretty cool. I’ve gone to church all of my life, but this was something pretty unique.”
He doesn’t always agree with West’s views on politics but said he remains a fan of West’s music.
