Kanye West, Chance the Rapper, and Kirk Franklin held a surprise Sunday Service gospel performance late last night, paying tribute to the late Kobe Bryant. Ye honored the late legend, singing “I was driving home/They was leaving your jersey on the freeway, and I just broke down, broke down, broke down.”

Yesterday Ye returned to Twitter before the service, paying respects to Bryant. “Kobe, we love you brother,” he shared. “We’re praying for your family and appreciate the life you’ve lived and all the inspiration you gave.” Chance equally joined the tribute at the Sunday Service gospel, rapping his verse to “Ultralight Beam.” You can watch footage of the moments (captured via Kim Kardashian) below.
