Gospel as a distinct musical genre has a long, rich history that pre-dates our enslaved ancestors' arrival on these shores. Songs, composed by Negro slaves, became the origin of American folk music and the e=genesis of all American musical genres that followed. The influence of Thomas A. Dorsey and James Cleveland on the development and growth of gospel music is documented. The significance of gospel music for salvation as well as the dilemma of gospel in this contemporary society are discussed. The book ends with interviews from people in gospel music ministry.

Make A Joyful Noise gives a slice of history. It explains why gospel music ministry inspires worshippers to glorify God. I learned about the Father of gospel music Dr. thomas Dorsey and the King of gospel music Rev. James Cleveland. The music organizations they founded have trained and encourgaed many singers, musicians directors over the years. Music ministry is a wonderful talent.
