I would maintain that most of the gospel references in musicβ€” aside from gospel music plain and pureβ€” have got little or nothing to do with the church. The church might say that as soon as you turn it into a popular-music thing, you devalue it. But in an odd way, it becomes so much more powerful. How can the church own music anyway?
