Kanye West appears to have filed a trademark application for the term “Sunday Service” with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, public records show.
The form submitted by Mascotte Holdings (the same company that filed trademarks for “Yeezus,” “Yeezy,” “Red October,” “Yandhi,” “Calabasas Clothing,” “Donda,” “Half Beast” and “Kanye West”), that was first reported by TMZ, lists “bottoms as clothing,” dresses, footwear, handwear, jackets, loungewear, scarves, shirts, socks and “tops as clothing” as merchandise to be sold bearing the mark. It was filed on July 19th.

Back in April, he brought the performance to Coachella, where he sold controversial and religious-themed apparel bearing such phrases as “Holy Spirit,” “Trust God” and “Jesus Walks.” The collection was eventually pulled from locations that originally offered it after facing significant backlash.
Stay tuned for more regarding this trademark issue and what form the proposed merchandise will take.
