Mali Music who has been known for his gospel music, is taking his upcoming project “Transition of Mali” on an R&B journey. The singer who grew up singing in his church choir in Savannah, Georgia shared with Boombox why he feels gospel music and R&B music go so well together. Check it out:
Blues is the truth of what’s happening. That’s a style of music that people just zone out to. You add rhythm to that, and you can kind of dance to it. But it still [has] strong topics. Gospel is the quickest evolving genre of all of them. This is going from “Amazing Grace,” “What a Friend We Have in Jesus;” then we have the “Oh Happy Day” with the Andraé Crouchs, and it moves to Kirk Franklin and God’s Property. And so gospel music, it just takes leaps. Now we have Lecrae, Andy Mineo. We have Mali Music. You know what I’m saying?
