Gospel Reggae is the fastest growing segment of Reggae music today.
It is really a homecoming of sorts because so much of the music
that influenced Ska, Rock Steady and Reggae has its roots in Gospel.
Songs like 'Shadrach, Meshach, & Abendego' by Justin Hinds
& the Dominoes, 'Oil in My Lamp' by Eric 'Monty' Morris, 'The
Tree of Life [We Are Marching On]' by Stranger Cole & Ken
Boothe, 'The Rivers of Babylon' by Brent Dowe and the Melodians,
which also became a worldwide hit for Boney M, were some of the
songs from the Ska and Rock Steady era[s] that demonstrated a
major Gospel influence.
Many mainstream artists have now switched to
[or at the very least include] Gospel Reggae including Clive Tennors,
Hopeton Lewis, Sanchez, Papa San, Carlene Davis, Richie Stephens,
Judy Mowatt, Lt. Stitchie & Junior Tucker. Some of the popular
artists include Joan Flemming, Claudette Clark, and the always
formidable Grace Thrillers. Jamaican music has certainly gone
full circle. Give Thanks and Praises. Listen
