Coming up, that's all we were allowed in the house.

I moved onto 'secular' music as I got older, but I still enjoy gospel and some Contemporary Christian music at times.

I credit Bebe and Cece Winans for my love of RnB music.

Share some songs you like, past or present.

Grace by Bebe and Cece has been on my top ten for awhile now..LOVE the song and love the way they sing it.

    On Sundays back in the 80's that was the ONLY option. I spent the better part of my youth coming up on the rough side of the mountain. Now days, no.

    Maybe it's not religious but it's the first I thought of, and it definitly is a gospelsong of sorts:

    ALL the big R&B singers at the time on the same song wikipediad it, these are all singing on it they called themselves BLACK MEN UNITED it was on the JASON'S LYRIC soundtrack which was like ROMEO & JULIET IN THE HOOD:

    Aaron Hall
    After 7
    Al B. Sure!
    Boyz II Men
    Brian McKnight
    Christopher Williams
    D'Angelo (songwriter)
    Damion Hall
    El DeBarge
    Gerald LeVert
    H-Town
    Intro
    Joe
    Keith Sweat
    Lenny Kravitz (guitar)
    Lil' Joe
    D.R.S.[citation needed]Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
    Portrait
    R. Kelly
    Silk
    Sovory
    Stokley Williams lead singer of Mint Condition
    Tevin Campbell
    Tony! Toni! Toné! (Raphael Saadiq on guitar)
    Usher

    I love it, it's one of those songs that I listen to when I'm down to get my spirits up

    We went to a small church when I was a kid and my pastor was Italian. They didnt play gospel music. I didnt really like gospel until I met my husband and when Kirk Franklin was popular in the late 90s. Still not a huge fan of gospel but these are my favorite songs:

    Kirk Franklin - My Life Is In His Hands, First Love, Imagine Me, Melodies From Heaven

    Marvin Sapp - Never Would Have Made It

    Tonex - Lord Make Me Over

    Fuck religious music. People who listen to that, only listen to that and claim secular music is for the devil. My moms be listening to that shit and when i check her i be hearing shit that is obviously religious versions of so called devil music they not supposed to even know about.

    Like, "Smile", "(Shackles) Praise Him", and "God in Me"

    Oh right... Creed is alot about Jesus and but it's not so over the top "praise the Jesus" that it gets annoying I like alot of theirs:
