Gospel comes to Motown…or Motown comes to Gospel…or better yet:
Gospel IS Motown and Motown IS Gospel.
- Ain t No Mountain High Enough Pastor W. A. Treadwell & The United Faith Tabernacle Choir 3:21
Jerry Wexler, the famous producer for Atlantic records, helped bring soul and R&B music to the world. Early on in his career Wexler coined the term R&B. He later said, I shouldn’t have called it “Rhythm and Blues”, I SHOULD have called it “Rhythm and Gospel.”
Amen to that.
