September Is Gospel Music Heritage Month
August 19, 2008 at 11:36 AM (PT)
The country’s first-ever NATIONAL GOSPEL MUSIC HERITAGE MONTH now has an exclusive website at www.gospelmusicheritage.com. The site launched yesterday (8/18) and will be dedicated to all aspects of the SEPTEMBER celebration of gospel music’s contributions to AMERICAN culture.
GOSPEL MUSIC HERITAGE MONTH is the result of the combined initiative of members of CONGRESS, THE RECORDING ACADEMY, the GOSPEL MUSIC ASSOCIATION (GMA) and the GOSPEL MUSIC CHANNEL (GMC) (NET NEWS 6/19). The dual legislation designated SEPTEMBER 2008 as GOSPEL MUSIC HERITAGE MONTH.
