Summary
Product Description: In When the Church Becomes Your Party, author Deborah Smith Pollard assesses contemporary gospel music as the genre enters the twenty-first century. She argues that although the flashy clothing, informal language, and elaborate stage presentation found in some of the newest gospel music might not be what some worshipers expect, this new aesthetic rests on the same Christian principles as more traditional forms and actually extends its message to a wider and younger audience.
Contents
  • "Praise is what we do": the rise of praise and worship music in the urban church
  • Right under our (upturned) noses: the phenomenon known as the gospel musical stage play
  • Muscle t-shirts, tight jeans, and cleavage: (w)rapping the gospel for a new generation
  • From princess premium stuff and Miss Mandy to holy boldness: the influence of women gospel announcers
  • Preachers in disguise: bringing the holy to hip hop.
