Christian Music Throughout The Years
It has been said that our faith becomes stronger during times of need. But such belief would only belittle our loyalty to our Father, for our faith should be more ubiquitous and more persistent than that. It is not something that we pull out of the bag whenever we’re in distress. It is a badge that we should wear proudly, a symbol of our love and our commitment to our Creator.
Faith is a celebration of all that is good about our religion.
Indeed, there have been many kinds of Christian music throughout the years. Some have a slow pace to convey a more personal feel. Most have fast beats to conjure a festive vibe. Others start slowly only to build up to a thunderous crescendo, in reference to the glory of God in the Highest.
Christian music in popular media was born in the 1960’s, when the 2nd Chapter of Acts, Andrae Crouch and the Disciples, Love Song, Barry McGuire, and Larry Norman integrated elements of Rock N’ Roll with songs of worship and praise. So successful was the advent of this kind of music that it became an industry of its own, which up to now is being labeled as Contemporary Christian Music (CCM).
The 1980’s saw the rise of popular CCM artists like Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Petra, and Stryper, all of whom have raised the bar of the genre. This was the time when Contemporary Christian Music broke away from the general category of Country Songs, a group in which CCM has always been associated with in the 70’s, to carve its own niche in the music business.
