Geographically, no one argues that Gospel music is predominantly linked with The United States. When considered simply as a musical form, there is no doubt that it is uniquely American.
But of course, the message of Jesus Christ is universal, and when that message is wrapped in the immensely appealing Gospel music package, there is no wonder that Gospel music is exploding in its popularity around the world.
Consider that Gospel artists too numerous to name frequently embark on overseas tours, and that these foreign venues are usually packed to the rafters. Consider that names such as Edwin Hawkins, Donnie McClurkin, Timothy Wright, Craig Hayes, James Hall, Andrae Crouch, Danniebelle Hall and others have even recorded popular albums outside the geographical confines of the USA.
And consider that we here at Gospelflava.com receive nearly daily inquires from Gospel enthusiasts from lands as diverse as Bulgaria, New Zealand, Japan, Brazil and Nigeria. It's not hard to conclude that Gospel music is indeed becoming a universal phenomenon.
So with that background, sit tight, grab your passport, fasten your seatbelt and stay with us as we unfold this, our continuing series entitled Gospel Around The World.
