    Thousands of people showed up to an outdoor shopping center in Utah to see rapper Kanye West perform what he calls a worship service.

    Saturday's concert was held right before the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints held its twice-yearly conference in Salt Lake City.

    West took the stage late in his worship service and performed one song — "Jesus Walks," from his 2004 album "The College Dropout."

    Afterward, the Salt Lake Tribune reported that West prayed and testified to the crowd about his religious journey.
