For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I used to listen to Andre Crouch. He was pretty popular in the 80s...

Love me some Clark Sisters, but I can listen to Dr. Dorinda Clark-Cole live all day. While I love her for her obvious devotion and annointing, her technical prowess makes me fall in love with her talent every time she opens her mouth. A musician like her mother the late Dr. Mattie Moss-Clark and her sister (The Queen of Hammond -3, Twinkie Clark), Dorinda's jazz scatting within the gospel realm is a thing of beauty, and that signature rasp of hers brings me great joy. music


"Heaven: Looking to Get There"

"Miracle"

I'm also quite fond of Dorinda's niece, Kierra Sheard, daughter of Dorinda's baby sister Karen-Clark Sheard. I remember" Kiki" being a little girl singing with her mom and singing in Dorinda's concert choirs as she was growing up. She has blossomed into quite the gospel powerhouse vocalist- she did an awesome job holding it down at the Essence Festival tribute to the Clark Sisters in 2016, I dare say she sang her face off in Jesus' name lol

"My Redeemer Liveth"

I love the Winans. Growing up, I never used to like gospel music (or church music as I used to call it) because the songs they sang in the church used to be so sad and depressing to me. All that changed when I heard the Winans, and I've loved them ever since.

The irony that you found church music sad is in the fact that the word "gospel" actually means "good news" lol

But yes, I didn't learn until much later as an adult on my spiritual walk in Christianity that historically, there are different sub-genres/classifications within gospel music even though all are biblically based...and over time we have sort of become a bit happier, you could say...although there is still a lot of life in those old lamentation and deliverance-heavy compositions lol

When it's all said and done though, the music is intended to touch and resonate with the listener, and be used almost for application to your life, so I TOTALLY get being a kid, listening to sonething like "Going Up Yonder", and being like, "...ummm, why am I happily singing about dying now? I'm like, 12"... falloff

^^ lol......@Ottensen, that's true about being that age and singing songs like that. I guess that's one of the reasons why I didn't like gospel music when I was young, because I remember the songs that were sung for funerals and by the older people that were in the church choir, that were so sad and depressing to me. I guess I just associated all gospel music with that time in my life, but like I said, all that changed when I heard the Winans, who were so uplifting, and made me feel happy, not sad. That's when I realized that not all gospel music was sad and depressing. I then started to appreciate and love gospel music, including the songs that I didn't like during childhood, because I'm older and wiser now, and understand them so much better. biggrin

Agreed. All I heard growing up were out-of-tune dirges or marching-to-war songs. Didn't sound good to me at all... But when I became an adult and heard singers like the Winans, I appreciated the uplifting spiritual TUNEFUL music that I heard. Nothing like what I was raised on. razz

I love anything by the Hawkins family, particularly Tramaine.

Their latest album "The Return" is really strong. I also love Twinkie's album "Ye Shall Receive Power" from '81.
