At the core of black music, there is no role more powerful and influential genre than Gospel. 

African culture has always been deep-rooted in faith and spirituality, dating back to the early 17th century. The oral traditions transcended into the music, sound, and rhetoric used to communicate, connect and bond during times of conflict. What we now refer to as Gospel music, became the outlet and common denominator of a people, as it still does today. The Gospel genre has played an integral role in some of the music’s most memorable moments. 

In celebration of Black Music Month, Every Praise will highlight the journeys of those who are now major contributors to the sound of Gospel music as we know it and pay homage to the genre that started it all.
