Gospel music is the 20th century of African American religious music that came after the Great Migration. Thomas Dorsey, “The Father of Gospel Music” originally was a blues and jazz pianist and composer, but he devoted his time to develop and advance gospel music. Gospel is also known as “good news”, and is embodied in the first four books of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, but evolved more than just the text. Gospel music then differed based on the denomination. It is most popularized in the Pentecostal, Baptist, Methodist and Non-denominational churches. Although it was created to send praises to God and a way to express troubles as well as joy from African Americans specifically, white people began creating their own gospel music as well.
