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.

This is an AT2W Replay that has sparked a huge interest in what was embedded in the gospel music industry for years.
We’ve had this weighing heavy on our hearts when it comes to gospel artists from yesteryear and the impact it has on our generation today. When we speak of our generation, we do mean for all of us living today not just for the young folk, as some may believe.
Cassietta George Nephew Reveals COGIC Pastor Raped Him Years Ago

Why Do Old School Gospel Artists Perform at Radically Inclusive Events? [Photos]
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.
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.
“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.”
“Aretha used to tell Inez that she loved her tops (high notes) and that wailing,” Heilbut said.
Did Shirley Caesar and Tonex’ Both Allegedly Rebel and Commit Gay Sin?
The Word of God lets us know Jesus does not like us mingling with those who oppose His commandments: ‘How can two walk together, except they agree (Amos 3:3)?’ That scripture goes for gospel artists collaborating with homosexuals. If you disagree with homosexuality, you would not desire to associate with those who do.
