In June, Gospel Music Channel joined with Senators, Members of Congress, The Recording Academy® and the Gospel Music Association to launch the "Gospel Music Heritage Month" initiative. The dual legislation in the House of Representatives (H.Con. Res. 370) and the Senate (S. Res. 595) designated September 2008 as "National Gospel Music Heritage Month," honoring gospel music for its valuable long-standing contributions to American culture. The initiative was created by the Gospel Music Channel, the country's first and only television network devoted to all forms of Gospel/Christian music.
Gospel Music Heritage Month honors a true American art form for its vast contributions to our culture, bringing a message of hope and inspiration to people of all racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Celebrate Gospel Music Heritage Month by attending concerts, events, watching and listening to gospel music, learning and reading about gospel music and more. Gospel Music Channel is the fastest-growing network in television today and can be seen in nearly 40 million homes on various cable systems around the country and on DIRECTV on channel 338.
