Growing up in the church, you have to remember listening to gospel almost everyday, especially on Sundays. Whether you are listening to it on your way to church, during praise and worship, on your way back to church, or even during Saturday morning cleaning, there is one gospel artist that most likely made it on your playlist at least once. The unique sound of Hezekiah Walker put the ultimate spin on gospel that led to an overall enjoyment of listening to the sacred song. The influence of popular culture, upbeat tunes, and diverse lyrics led to people singing songs and wanting to replay them over and over again. Hezekiah Walker was influential on artists such as Tye Tribbett and Kirk Franklin by being part of a group of pioneers that introduced popular music culture to gospel music in order to attract a wide range of audiences. Some of his notable songs impacted by pop culture include “Jesus Is My Help”, “Power Belongs to God”, “Lift Him Up”, and many more.
