What is Reggae Gospel Music?

Reggae gospel is one of Jamaica's newest musical genres, originating in the early 1990's and it is continuing to grow in popularity with an increasing number of artists and fans alike.

It features the familiar dancehall rhythms Jamaicans love dearly but the lyrics set to this music are meant for praise and worship and have a Christian theme to give God glory.

While not every church on the island accepts this brand of music as suitable for services, it has caught on with some of the more contemporary ones and is a lively part of worship.

Who Performs these Songs?

The number of musicians who identify themselves as Christians and perform in a reggae gospel style keeps on getting larger.

Some of these artists were once followers of Rastafarianism but have since become born again and have chosen to spread the word of God through their music.

Papa San

DJ Nicholas

Born in Kingston as Nicholas Eccleston, DJ Nicholas was once a young performer who sang violent themed songs and identified with the Rastafarian faith, although this was not the path he was to stay on. Feeling the urge from the Holy Spirit, he decided to dedicate his life to God and cleaned up his way of living, including his music.

His first reggae gospel music album DJ Nicholas on the Shout was released in 2005 and in the following year he was the recipient of several awards. In 2008 his second album Louder than Ever came out and he continued to win even more awards and gain recognition as a minister of the gospel.

Prodigal Son

He began producing reggae gospel music to give praise to God and in 2001 he released his debut album Radikal Prodigal followed by several more albums over the following years such as  C.E.O. Christ's Executive Officer, My Block, and Halfway There. He has also been the recipient of several notable awards as a gospel performer.
