What Bubblegum Gospel Artists Sampled from Crystal Waters Music?
Originally posted on Oct 14, 2011
Some of you are wondering what is Bubblegum gospel? Well, we have to take the credit for that.

They just happened to stick a well known and once respected genre label on it.

Original post from Dec. 25, 2011:

Read report below:

Gospel Great Albertina Walker and Her Song “I’m Still Here”
If you’ve been through anything, this song tells it all. If you thought you would never make it through your situation, God was there. Whenever you need a word from God, there is always a song that can testify to what you have been through.
This song, “I’m Still Here” by the late Albertina Walker means so much to me because I was homeless for nearly 2 years and this song nurtured and blessed me so. When God blessed me and my family off the streets, this song was my anthem.
