According to Wikipedia the music industry consists of the companies and individuals that earn money by creating new songs and pieces and selling live concerts and shows, audio and video recording, compositions and sweet music. It also comprises singers, conductors and band leaders.
Today we can all see that the gospel music industry is really growing but I also realized that the number of People that are going into secular music are increasing, most People feel it’s because they are not getting as much money as they would have wanted, I believe that if you are going into anything at all you should not see money as the primary reason for going into whatever you want to start especially gospel music, even if the money is needed it should not be your reason.
Whatever God has called you to do is to put food on your table and give glory to God but sometimes when you put so much focus on just the money that’s when you get frustrated when the money is not coming, if you are adding value to People trust me the money will come, and God cannot owe anyone their rewards for service to him.
Another reason why gospel artist switch to secular is due to critism, whether you believe it or not gospel artist go through a lot of critism and sometimes this makes them switch totally into singing secular songs. Genuine born again gospel artists will hardly switch to secular music, most People that easily switch to secular songs are not genuinely born again.
Most gospel artist hardly find sponsors for their song. It is time for the gospel to come out strong and also try to publicize the upcoming gospel artist, as much as it’s good for gospel artist to stick to gospel no matter what, no one wants to remain hidden even when they are given the opportunity to showcase themselves. I know we have so many vocalists in Church who can sing so well, they want the World to know their capabilities and most of them switch to secular music due to desperation.
