About The Funky Divas Of Gospel
On your feet or on your knees...in the aisles, in the pews, at a concert or the privacy of your own home, let this music take your soul wherever it wants to go...enjoy the ride - and for God's sake make a joyful noise...because GOSPEL IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT!
The Funky Divas of Gospel is the collaboration of a gospel trio and a 4 piece band whose purpose is to share an uplifting and life-affirming message through traditional and contemporary spirit-filled music (AND TO ROCK THE HOUSE). The spirit that flows through the songs we sing is universal and tells a story as old as time.
We are performers who just plain love singing gospel music and entertaining audiences.
Our music is primarily defined as gospel in the southern African-American tradition with an R&B flavor. However, while it is that, it is not all we sing. We include traditional gospel songs and songs from other faiths and cultures as well as secular music which may have good news to share. It is roots music. It is harmonies and acapella - hard rocking, and reflective. It is strong emotionally as well as prayerful. It is toe tapping. It is hand clapping. It can (and does) move audiences to their feet and into the aisles to dance. It is joyous and downright great music.
It is, above all- GOSPEL.
Recently, after spending an afternoon with the Divas, a local newspaper reporter wrote, "It seems the only blues felt after this show belongs to those who missed it. All bluegrass, jazz, soul and gospel fans be forewarned: if you miss this funky groove, to paraphrase a line in one of their songs, it ain't nobody's fault but yours."
