    How Gay Gospel Artists Left a Tainted Legacy- From Holy to Not At All [Part Three]

    This is Part 3 which we will explore a gay gospel artist and minister and his part in starting a gay revolution in the black church by pure disobedience.

    This is presumably the last part of our series: How Gay Gospel Artists Left a Tainted Legacy For Today’s Generation. We do not plan to add to this series as we feel this may complete the subject… for now. We will discuss a very important issue about how gay gospel artists emerged. We will specifically focus on one corner of the country that made a huge impact on gospel music and the gay culture in the church.

    [NEW] How Gay Gospel Artists Left a Tainted Legacy for Today’s Generation [Part 2]

    This is part two of this article about how gay gospel artists left a tainted legacy for our generation today. We felt the need to expand this subject especially today as gospel music has evolved in something much more than just ‘singing’. Gospel music has turned into a industry of hefty money makers and revolutionaries. Though many artists from the early 1960’s and earlier sang gospel music because they ‘love the Lord’, grew up in the church and wanted to spread the gospel, it quickly turned into a money making machine that created more than just records. The gospel music industry became a way of expressing the views of society both political and sexual. Let’s speak on the sexual part because this is what is taking over our society today through homosexuality and gay rights.

    We found some information on some gospel artists who have been performing at gay and inclusive events. If you don’t know what inclusive means its a doctrine that accepts and allegedly loves everyone including those from the homosexual community which goes against Christianity and the holy bible. Though it covers many other things, we will speak on what we mentioned to make our point.

    Apparently, some of the gospel artists from back in the day have been booked for events that were sponsored for gay or inclusive purposes. We don’t know if they knew beforehand who hosted these events but they were featured on posters.

    Some say Chicago gospel icon Inez Andrews was the last of her kind. She was a part of a golden age with other gospel artists such as Albertina Walker, DeLois Barrett and Mahalia Jackson.
     The Chicago Tribune reported on her death this week:
    Inez Andrews, 83, died at 2:01 p.m. Wednesday in her South Side home, said her granddaughter Vanessa Moultry. A cause of death has not been determined, but Andrews was being treated for cancer, her granddaughter said.

    “There’s no one left from that era,” said author Anthony Heilbut, whose book “The Gospel Sound: Good News and Bad Times” is a standard text on the subject. “She was famous for this immense range. She would start soft and then she would zoom up and with tremendous volume hit these piercing notes in natural voice.”
    “She would build in such a clever way,” Heilbut added. “Her voice would lift, and she would become a preacher. She had a great sense of theater.”
    The music she made reflected the woman she was, those who knew Andrews said.
    And Andrews’ arrangement of “Mary, Don’t You Weep” influenced Aretha Franklin’s version of the tune on Franklin’s classic 1972 album “Amazing Grace.”
    “Aretha used to tell Inez that she loved her tops (high notes) and that wailing,” Heilbut said.
