Jamaican Gospel Music

"Jamaica Gospel Reggae"

Jamaican Gospel Music - This music has taken a turn to more dancehall and reggae beats since the late 1990s.



This transformation has some christian worshipers saying that Gospel music in Jamaic a is going down the wrong path.

Dancehall and reggae music is considered to be slack and rude by some Christians.

We here at Dancehall Reggae World have two (2) questions.

1. Do you think it's wrong for gospel artist to perform or record their songs on dancehall/reggae riddims?

2. At a stage shows or festivals , do you have a problem with dancehall/reggae artiste sharing the same stage with gospel artists?.

You can submit your answers below by simple filling out the form provided.

Some of Jamaica's top gospel artists are, Judy Mowatt, Carlene Davis, Goddy Goody, Dj Nicholas, Papa San, Lt Stichie, Sister Scully, Grace Thrillers, Omari, Sanchez, Chevelle Franklin, Glacia Robinson and cuc-koo-doo.

I remember growing up in the late 1990s, on Sundays in Jamaica local radio stations would play a lot of Jamaica's gospel music. Presently you might only get 2-3 hours of gospel music in the morning.

Thanks to the Jamaica Culture Development Commission (JCDC), young upcoming gospel artists are given the opportunity through their "Gospel Song Contest".

This contest was started back in 1987.

The fastest growing sub-genre of reggae music is "Gospel Reggae".

P.S - Remember to submit your views on the two questions previously asked.
