Artists by Musical Genre

Gospel music – a cross between Protestant hymns and the work songs of African slaves – first came into being in the United States in the 19th century. While initially it developed among Afro-Americans and whites from the American South, gospel music would eventually gain audiences throughout the U.S. and beyond thanks to incomparable singers like Mahalia Jackson and groups such as the Harlem Gospel Choir.
