Let’s look at Classic and most selling gospel artists this year. You may be wondering like me, if gospel artists should be billionaires? And why not? But then it may not make sense since the purest satisfaction is having the joy of the lord….and right??
The artists we chose are already house hold names and they also have the highest net worth in the gospel music category. This free music is amazing and most people love free stuff! However, these artists also took gospel from church to the concert dance floors and even grew a culture where music clubs made time for their music. So we love them for making gospel music reach so many places of fun as well. So let’s look at each artist and their latest projects. Michael W Smith and Cece Winans latest projects are similarly award winning live album worship videos while Yolanda is currently featuring in a drama series that features her songs as well and it’s called God’s business. Let’s get more details;
