At least 7,000 people filled in a Salt Lake City outdoor mall on Saturday to listen and participate in Kanye West’s “Sunday Service,” according to Deseret News.

As part of his tour around the country, West has brought free worship services featuring a choir to several cities. He only sang “Jesus Walks,” one of his biggest hits, during the service, and used the rest of his time to preach on topics such as social media and race.

“Do not read comments on the internet,” he said to the crowd. “These people don’t know you like that. Social media is designed to make you think slower … They want to slow you down and control you.”

“I ain’t never make a decision based only on my color,” he continued. “That’s a form of slavery—mental slavery. I ain’t drink from the white person foundation. … I ain’t playing with them. All these mind controllers, the media, all of these mind controllers. I find that wherever Christ is where I’ve got my mind at. We find that the love of Christ is where I’ve got my mind back.”

According to CBN, the rapper even defended his support of President Donald Trump, arguing that the Republicans freed the slaves.
