Have you ever heard a song that moved you to the point where you wanted to tell all of your friends about it? Well, that is the type of feeling you may experience when listening to gospel music. By its very definition, the term gospel means good news. Gospel music is one of the vehicles through which the ideals of Christianity have been spread to audiences all over the world.

Gospel Music is a shining beacon of hope, a fantastic journey of joy divine, and a triumphant victory in God that comes from deep down in the souls of God’s Chosen People. The greatest melodies and the most stimulating songs have been given to this Nation and the World through the African American experience.

Starting tonight and for the rest of this month we will explore the rich history of Gospel Music through the contributions of great pioneers like Andraé Edward Crouch, Mahalia Jackson, Thomas DorseyAlbertina Walker, James Cleveland many others.
