Dancehall Rhythm attracks more than lyrics

by Alisia Edwards
(Brooklyn, NY)

I do not believe there is anything wrong with gospel singers using dancehall rhythms.

A lot of people listen to a song because of the rhythm without even understanding a word that is spoken in the song. If gospel artist can turn all these slack dancehall songs into worship song then that would be great.

This would have a more positive impact on our youths. The lyrics would make more sense and eventually when one hears the rhythm they will direct it to the gospel song rather than the dancehall. A lot of these dancehall songs are garbage. There is no moral behind the lyrics. I wonder if these artist even sit down and think about what they are writing before putting it on the air.

I for one use to love dancehall because that's what I usually hear on a daily basis. When I went to school and the girls in my class would make up gospel song from dancehall rhythm I would enjoy the gospel version better more. Some people enjoy listening to a song because of the rhythm and not because of the lyrics (I recently did a research on this).

If there is a stage show it should be either for the dancehall artist or the gospel artist. I do not approve both being on the stage at the same time in one night. This is like mixing oil and water. It does not combine well. The same as going to dance Saturday night and then going to church Sunday morning.

This is a slap in Gods face. However, dancehall artist can have their show tonight and gospel have theirs the following night. There is nothing wrong with that in my sight especially where space is concerned.
