Six months after expressing interest in singing with West, 42, and the rest of the acclaimed gospel group, Bieber, 25, made his surprise, debut appearance at the private event on Sunday night.
Not only did the Yummy singer attend the intimate, indoor gig, but he took the stage with the rest of the musicians to perform an emotional cover of Marvin Sapp’s 2007 gospel anthem, Never Would Have Made It.
The Canadian pop star’s heartfelt performance was met with roars of applause when singing inspiring lines from the song like, “I’m stronger, I’m wiser / I’m better, much better” and “When I look back over all you brought me through / I can see that you were the one I held on to.”
Back in late-August, Bieber sang the same cover during a gathering at Churchome in Los Angeles.
Following the performance, he posted about the worship via Instagram, opening up about his religious beliefs.
“God is pulling me through a hard season,” he said. “Having trust in Jesus at your worst times is the absolute hardest. But he is faithful to complete what he started.”

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
Later on, upon being asked if he’d ever perform with West’s Sunday Service Choir, Bieber told TMZ, “Yes.”
In addition to Bieber — who recently put out a new album, Changes — American rappers Nas and Roddy Ricch appeared at the exclusive Sunday Service performance last week.
The choir reimagined the latter artist’s smash-hit 2019 single The Box — which was also captured by Kardashian, 39, on Instagram.
