Gospel Music is a genre in and of itself, that crosses style boundaries. Various selections may be based on Country, Bluegrass, Hip Hop, Classical, Urban Contemporary, and even Jazz. The common denominator throughout is the focus on the Christian belief system. Various song themes come from Biblical concepts, with Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit, as the principle guide for one's life.
The songs themselves are considered to provide inspiration, instruction, strength and peace to the listener that may or may not have accepted the Christian belief system for themselves.
