As you may already know, lately I have been really into Gospel church music. As an aspiring vocalist, I feel a special connection when listening to Gospel singers and it brings me great euphoria. Don’t really know how to explain all I know is I feel it.. For me, I feel the presence of God when I listen to such singers sing their hearts out. It almost gives me a type of purpose that I can’t really articulate but hope to learn more about and delve into as I grow as a singer and follower of God. While I know I have so much more to learn, I discovered the Anointed Pace Sisters, whose voices are incredibly remarkable.. Gospel singers truly put your mind and soul in a different place, or at least for me it does so. Thought I’d share a little something by one of sisters– Duranice Pace. Hope it brings you as much joy and inspiration as it did me.
Been exploring a number of genres lately to broaden my musical palette, including Gospel– which I think may be essential for any aspiring vocalist.. Anyhow, thought I share some gems with you that I discovered on the great wonder called Youtube. True music for me reaches the soul and you can most definitely feel that with this music. Some gospel artists I’ve recently discovered and have been inspired by are Yolanda Adams, Kirk Franklin, Clark Sisters, Donnie McClurkin, etc. Been reevaluating and rekindling my relationship with God as of lately, and have found him through the greatness of gospel music. Videos below for inspiration.
As someone who doesn’t attend black church, I have to admit I feel as though I am missing out on life. In spite contrary belief, I truly believe that the best music comes for the church, especially black church― where many of the talented/ gifted musicians are raised in. It is such a phenomenon to witness such artists perform and express themselves in the truest way possible. For me, this is exactly what Keke does in her performance at the BET. Someone take me, and I might just leave a different woman.
