Give Me Some Gospel
The genre of Gospel emerged in 1946 from African Americans who desired a new form of music to express their common religious beliefs. Gospel was then used to mentally escape and let go of all burdens by letting their Lord take over through their lyrics.
In Gospel, musicians use bass guitar, drums, pianos, and other instruments. Some of these musicians performed in choirs-groups of musicians.
Gospel added adlibs and shouts hence-ring and shout.
