Rapper Kanye West will join megachurch pastor Joel Osteen on tour at an event in Yankee Stadium, TMZ reported.

Sources close to West’s team told the news outlet on Thursday that West and Osteen will appear together for the second time next May, where Osteen will deliver a sermon and West will perform a musical act.

West has in recent months infused his work with heavy Christian themes and has begun hosting quasi-religious gospel show “Sunday services” in cities around the country.

He and Osteen previously appeared onstage together at Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, in November.

The rapper is a vocal supporter of President Trump and previously met Trump in a televised White House visit earlier this year. In November, he described his support for the president as “God’s practical joke.”

“This shows you that God is hilarious. … God has got a sense of humor. Liberals love art, right, and now, I am unquestionably, undoubtedly the greatest human artist of all time. It’s just not even a question anymore at this point. It’s just a fact, right?” he said at the time.

“So, for the greatest artist in human existence to put a red hat on was God’s practical joke on all liberals like, ‘Nooooo not Kanye,'” West added in the interview.
