Rejoice & Shout Reviews
As well testified, gospel music springs from the singers' enthusiastic beliefs and faith. For example, Pastor Andrae Crouch puts it best when he says we would all melt if we ever directly heard the voice of God, so His words have to be conveyed through intermediaries. At the same time, I can attest one does not have to believe similarly to enjoy gospel music or anything else wonderful in this bountiful world, to disagree with Smokey Robinson.
While the first 30 minutes seems a bit dry, its certainly eye-opening to the birth of this genre of music and its evolution over generations. I enjoyed this film much more than I thought I would, and if you're a music fan, you'll be able to identify where the Blues, Rap and Hip Hop evolved from Gospel taking the lead.
This is a good film and well worth your time. I recommend it.
