Taking It to the Streets: How Gospel Music Has Infiltrated the Top Forty
Jacque Rhodes

Would you be surprised if you picked up the latest Snoop Dogg CD, flipped it over to read the titles and found a track called, "Jesus Is My Lord and Savior?” It is common practice, and even expected, for a bona fide pop musician or rap artist to include "the gospel song” on his or her album. In this workshop, Jacque Rhodes discusses how gospel music has become interwoven with popular music and considers what influence popular music may be having on gospel artists.
