Music for the Soul: The Story of Gospel Music
In this course, we'll trace the history of gospel music, from its beginnings in the Southern United States in the 1800s to its present-day blend of soul and R&B. We'll look at artists from Mahalia Jackson and The Dixie Hummingbird to Sam Cooke, the Reverend Al Green and Aretha Franklin. And did you know that Elvis sold more gospel records than pop records?
