Isn't Her Grace Amazing!: The Women Who Changed Gospel Music (Hardback)

£30.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

A unique tribute to often overlooked women who have left an indelible mark on Gospel Music-powerful talents who overcame racism and sexism to define the genre, establish its sound, and set the standard for good sangin' for generations.



Nothing in the world soothes the soul better than Gospel music. From the foot-stomping, hand-clapping melodies of yesterday to the head-bobbing, bass-thumping hits of today, Gospel music ignites the spirit and delivers the inspiration that takes us from the rough side of the mountain to the peak of God's love and grace. That feeling of joy, peace, love, and contentment is amplified when it's ringing through the voice of a sister who can SANG, Cheryl Wills reminds us. The remedy for a tough day at work can be alleviated with Mary Mary's uplifting jam Shackles, the answer to your heart's desires can be found in the harmonies of The Clark Sisters Name It, Claim It, and if you need a reminder of God's love, there is nothing more timeless that Aretha Franklin's stirring rendition of Amazing Grace.



Some talented performers, like Sister Rosetta Tharpe have faded from history, while singers like Yolanda Adams are at the top of her game. During the twentieth century, Willie Mae Ford spent most of her life encouraging and uplifting Christians both in church and on stage and composed more than 100 Gospel songs, yet it was men like her co-writer, Thomas A. Dorsey, who received the accolades and fame. Many women in the Gospel music industry go unnoticed, unpaid, and under-appreciated for their contributions, yet it is these women who are often the bedrock for songwriting, arranging, directing, and developing singers.



Cheryl Wills, the granddaughter of a Gospel singer, at last shines a spotlight on these spectacular women of song. The only book of its kind, Isn't Her Grace Amazing! showcase the talents, gifts, and skills of women in the Gospel music industry. It celebrates these heroines, chronicles their journeys from the choir loft to the world's largest stages, and reveals how they revolutionized this sacred music that is beloved worldwide. From the matriarchs of this movement to today's chart-topping divas, Wills offers in-depth portraits of twenty-five amazing women of Gospel music-based on interviews and extensive research-behind-the-scenes stories of favorite gospel hits, and illuminates what makes each of them shine.
