What is gospel music in a nutshell?


Answer by  benstac (1928)

Gospel music is a form of Christian music with roots coming from Africa and Europe. It is found more frequently in the Southern United States in African American Christian churches. Often times, there are strong voices that perform solos or duos with a harmony from a choir. A theme of God or brotherly love is most popular in gospel music.

Gospel music is "church" music. The lyrics are written around Biblical stories. The beat is usually quite upbeat and gets one's toes tapping or hands clapping. Many people consider Southern Baptist songs to be considered "gospel music" because it is Biblical and has a strong beat that gets one's feet stomping and hand's clapping.
