Life is not always smooth sailing and when we are weak and trouble we realise we do have a spiritual side that needs attention. The gospel is the music of the soul. The gospel has a resonance and a feel that can uplift and put us back on track. Gospel music has carried many through difficult times. Some of us grew up with the sounds of gospels and so whenever we hear it, it can bring that secure feeling and contentment. The gospels can give us everything we need and open the door to expression of all we feel spiritually.
“There is a sound that comes from gospel music that doesn’t come from anything else. It is a sound of peace. It is a sound of, ‘I’m going to make it through all of this.’ “
“People love gospel music. It’s calming. It’s soothing. It gets right to the point of whatever you’re dealing with.”
Yolanda Adams: 27th August 1961 (Gospel Singer)
