Watch Kanye West’s Sunday Service choir perform spiritual versions of Nirvana songs

ABC/Randy HolmesA couple of Nirvana songs became church music over the weekend thanks to Kanye West.

This past Sunday’s edition of the rapper’s weekly Sunday Service events — which usually feature West, a gospel choir and/or various guests singing spiritual versions of his songs, as well as songs by other artists — included performances of the Nevermind classics “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Come As You Are.”

For both songs, the choir replaced some of the original lyrics with more church-centric language. For example, the Sunday Service version of the “Teen Spirit” chorus goes, “Let your light shine/It’s contagious/Here we are now/Inspiration!” instead of “With the lights out/It’s less dangerous/Here we are now/Entertain us.”

West previously used a sample of Kurt Cobain‘s rare home recording “Burn the Rain” — included on the 2015 Montage of Heck album — on a collaborative song with Kid Cudi titled “Cudi Montage.”
