The annual publication, described as "a one-stop source to the gospel music industry features an invaluable collection of resource listings, including record companies, management and booking agencies, radio stations and retail outlets. From where to find gospel to what releases made their way into the gospel marketplace last year, and the top-100 gospel artists, and events, how to get involved and or where to get more exposure.
Highlights for the book include the genre's most-sought after producers and input from key executives as well as big-name talent, including Kirk Franklin, Donnie McClurkin, CeCe Winans, Vickie Winans and Yolanda Adams.
The book is written by Lisa Collins, who edited Billboard Magazine's "In The Spirit" for 15 years. Collins wrote the book after noting a void in information about the gospel music industry. "Here gospel is something that we as blacks have contributed to America's music culture. Something that has had a measurable impact, and yet there was no substantive documentation of the vast contribution blacks have made," Collins says. "Nor was there any place you could get resource information on blacks in the gospel music industry."
The book is available at Christian bookstores and gospel retailers throughout the country. Or you can order the "The Gospel Music Industry Roundup '2004" by including a check or money order to:
