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.
