Gospel is a genre of music that has popularized various artists, composers, and choirs around the world for their harmonious vocals, deep lyrics and incredibly uplifting performances. The roots of gospel music date back to the early 17th century, where it used to be sung in churches as hymns, in an a cappella fashion, accompanied by clapping and foot stomping. With powerful lyrics being mainly inspired by Christian beliefs, this music was and still is performed for religious reasons, as well as aesthetic and ceremonial purposes.
Today, gospel music is continuously growing, developing several other sub-genres, such as gospel blues and country gospel. Some of the most popular tunes include Oh Happy Day, I'll Fly Away and, best of all, Amen Amen Amen, which we've included in our collection of the top gospel songs of all time.
