Who is the best Southern gospel singer?
The traditional gospel is the one that basically has been given in the African-American evangelical churches in the United States and is usually performed by a choir, which may have one or more soloists. It is characterized by fast and lively rhythms with a continuous bass, the use of a tambourine player and the important presence of a hammond organ. To this subgenre belongs one of the best known songs “Oh Happy Day” by Edwin Hawkins.
It is a gospel that breaks the most conservative schemes of the genre mixing with energy the tradition with other styles, such as funk, rock and blues. Well known artists in this subgenre are Kirk Franklin, Kurt Carr or Fred Hammond.
Currently one could speak of a kind of subgenre called “European gospel” due to the contributions that European composers such as Joakin Arenius have brought to the style. Recently, European gospel festivals have emerged, such as the Gospelkirchentag, held in June in Dortmund, Germany, since 2010..

Are you one of those people who find it completely impossible to listen to your own audio notes? Have you ever listened to your own recorded voice and been horrified? Don’t worry, it happens to everyone. Most people hate their own voice when they hear themselves because of a matter of expectations. Our auditory system hides more secrets than you can imagine. The problem originates from the fact that when we speak, we perceive our voice through two different channels. This double perception causes a distortion when listening to our voice. On the one hand, we hear our voice through our own ear as we would any external sound. However, when we speak, our voice also comes to us through another channel. This other channel is nothing more than the simple vibration produced in the bones and tissues that make up the skull when articulating words. It is the cochlea that echoes this vibration and transmits it through the brain.
