Gospel music came out of spirituals and arranged music of the 1870-1920 period which was a mixture of european psalms and hymns mixed with holler and work songs of afroamerican slaves in the North-American plantations wich became call and response chant in churches started by itinerant preachers; the traditional songs and 'fasola' chants mixed with early gospel, became 'southern gospel'; gospel was influenced by blues and jazz in the period 1920-45 and influenced those styles as well; it gave birth to 'a cappella' and vocal quartets which were part of the the creation of soul music (Sam Cooke and others, it mixed with R&B (Ray Charles, with pop (Edwin Hawkins) and rock (Norman Greenbaum) and has recently mixed with rap, hip-hop, salsa and other styles to evolve into christian rock and contemporary urban and inspirational gospel.

The worry should not be how it started but where it is at today...alot of it is twisted. People singing not to glorify God but themselves and personal gain.

I think gospel music is a form of music that express the way "all people"feel about god its basicly the same as chistan mucic,but a little louder,and its a better way of telling god how you feel about him.christan music is the form of music you would most likly hear in a white church,and they think gospel music is to loud and they also think it came from slaves.but spirituals from slaves is way differnt from gospel music.Im not races but the coments ive seen about gospel music ofinded me when the said its "BLACK people form of christan music.
