Singing God

By 8th of March 20032003, Music

Gospel has always been an outlet of emotions, in the past it was mainly for religious purposes; today it is a form of expression. Ali Sharpe takes us through the origins of gospel music, how it was fashioned by Africans slaves in the West and its development. Ali Sharpe teaches gospel singing at the Bournemouth University. She can be contacted at the Arts Centre in Talbot House.
