The reality star, 38, took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday night to explain: ‘Last night we had dinner in the domes for Kanye’s dads 70th birthday with a beautiful performance by 70 Sunday Service choir members.’
Kim then went on to share a number of lovely short videos of the inspiring performance, with the choir all dressed in white while singing and dancing their heart out.

’70th birthday!’ The reality star, 38, took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday night to explain the festivities
The heartwarming day of celebrations comes after reports that Los Angeles building regulators visited Kanye’s sprawling Yeezy Home community twice and determined that the homes violated building codes as they were permanent structures and require a permit to be built.
According to TMZ, the Famous hitmaker has until September 15 to obtain a permit or tear his project down.
Kanye built the future-esque structures earlier this year to create a one-of-a kind community that dismantles the class system within the housing market and shelters the homeless – but the plan may be a bust if he doesn’t obtain a building permit soon.
Inspectors were first called to the Gold Digger singer’s property following noise complaints from several neighbours living adjacent to the 300-acre Calabasas project about construction late at night.

The first time an inspector with the LA County Department of Public Works stopped by the project, an on-site manager at the Yeezy Home project told inspectors the site was a ‘production’ project and temporary.
The second inspection took place two week ago and inspectors found the structures sitting on top of concrete platforms and determined the prototypes were permanent.
The domes sit on the Hidden Hills property that Kanye and Kim first purchased back in 2014.
Sources familiar with the project previously said it will ‘break barriers that separate classes… namely, the rich, the middle class and the poor.’
In an earlier interview with Forbes, West told a reporter that the domes could ‘hopefully be used to house the homeless, having them live in spaces said to be sunk into the ground’.

‘Dynamic’ has been the word used to describe the project, which fits the exclusive brand that the fashion-mogul has come to be known for.
‘There, with the hazy heft of something enormous and far away, stand a trio of structures that look like the skeletons of wooden spaceships,’ Zack O’Malley Greenburg wrote of the project in Forbes cover piece on Kanye.
‘They’re the physical prototypes of his concept, each oblong and dozens of feet tall, and West leads me inside each one. He tells me they could be used as living spaces for the homeless, perhaps sunk into the ground with light filtering in through the top. We stand there in silence for several minutes considering the structures before walking back down to his lurking Lamborghini and zooming off into the night.’

Meanwhile, Kim took to Twitter on Thursday to share a photo of a notebook which appeared to contain the rapper’s new album title with a track list.
As the Jesus Walk hitmaker’s ninth-studio album was originally supposed to be called Yandhi, no doubt many Kanye diehards were surprised to find out that the project is now called Jesus Is King.
The make-up mogul also announced that the release date of the album will be September 27.

Yandhi was originally supposed to be released in October of last year before being pushed back to the end of November. There was ultimately no other update given on the album until now.
The name of the project and the names of the tracks are leading many to believe that Kanye could be releasing a gospel album which is a concept he has played with before.
In fact Kanye described his seventh studio album The Life Of Pablo released in 2016 as ‘a gospel album with a whole lot of cursing on it.’
The tracks teased by Kim included titles like: God Is, Baptized, Sunday, and Sweet Jesus.
