Good Friday Gospel (Friday Gold #13)

Whether you’re version of Easter weekend involves coloring eggs, going to brunch, a church service or all of the above, it should also involve music. There’s so much great gospel music out there to listen to that narrowing down to just 10 songs for this playlist would have been impossible if not for the fact that many of my favorite tracks aren’t available on Spotify to share with you.

If you’re interested in making a deeper exploration of gospel music, these compilations of black gospel songs are a great place to start. As far as I can tell, none of them are currently available to stream:

Fortunately, there is plenty of great gospel music that is available on YouTube and Spotify. I’ve tried to create a mix of classic gospel numbers and newer, nontraditional songs.
I hope you enjoy. Happy Good Friday to you.
