Welcome to the Golden Era Gospel Blog


Welcome to the Golden Era Gospel Blog. If you've found yourself here, you probably have an interest in black gospel music from the time period known as the Golden Era, which is roughly 1945-1965. This period produced many of the most hard working, charismatic, showstopping singers and groups in the genre including The Soul Stirrers, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, Madame Edna Gallmon Cooke, Mahalia Jackson, Clara Ward and the Ward Singers, James Cleveland, The Caravans, The Roberta Martin Singers, Professor Alex Bradford, and The Davis Sisters. That's just a small list of the singers and groups from that era. The intention of this blog is to educate people on this often neglected subject. In the near future, I hope to have interviews, news, videos, and other pertinent information posted to this blog.
