Deadline reports what each guest will be doing for the service. Carey will be performing her song “Hero”, honoring the first medical professionals and first responders working in the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I have known Mariah from years past, and we’d talked about doing some things,” Osteen said. “They actually contacted us because she wanted to show some support and honor to the first responder[s]… and do her part to bring hope and uplift the nation.”

While Kanye’s plans are not fully detailed, Osteen noted that West’s Sunday Service Choir will be present. West has hosted his Sunday Services all throughout 2019 in multiple locations, including Lakewood Church.

“He’s handling that part,” Osteen said. “I’m not so sure exactly what he’s going to do but he sent me a couple of pictures where it looks like they’re going to keep the social distancing. I don’t know, Kanye is one of a kind. He’ll figure out some way to do it.”

As for filmmaker Tyler Perry, Osteen indicated that he has a special message in place.
