Welcome to your place for inspirational news and notes from the world of gospel.
As host blogger of Gospelrama, I'll write about artists whose music renews, revives and restores a sense of hope, faith and direction. I'll look at news about the personalities who create faith-based music and talk with these artists — local, regional and national – about their new CDs, concerts and other appearances.
So why a gospel blog? The answer is simple. You demanded it.
Each year, The Sun has taken note of how responsive our readers and participants are to The Macy's presents UniSun Gospel Celebration, an event named after the newspaper's African-American lifestyles section, UniSun, for which I'm the editor.
It's sold out nearly every performance in the past two years. And we've received hundreds of thousands of hits on our postings about these celebrations. So as we plan our third celebration for this September, we wanted to stay connected to you.
And this is a cooperative interactive effort. As you read, you're invited to share your thoughts — as well as snippets of video of your church choir or other notable performances.
