Kanye West Dedicates His Sunday Service to Longtime Friend Virgil Abloh, Hours After His Death Was Announced

Kanye West is in mourning following the death of his longtime friend, fashion designer Virgil Abloh.

The two stars began working together in 2002 and collaborated on many projects. Most recently, Virgil served as the creative director of Donda.

Kanye held his Sunday Service today (November 28) just hours after the news of Virgil‘s death was announced. He passed away following a private, two-year battle with a rare, aggressive form of cancer called cardiac angiosarcoma.

A message from Kanye on the Sunday Service website read, “In loving memory of Virgil Abloh, the creative director of Donda.”

People reports that the choir performed a rendition of Adele‘s “Easy on Me” featuring a revised section of the song.

The first verse of the song included the following lyrics: “I know your love flows 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.”

The chorus included the lyrics: “Go easy on me, father. I am still your child, and I need a chance to feel your love around.”
