Minister of Music J. Bass leads the New Vision Celebration Choir during the eight annual Spring Revival at Progressive Missionary Baptist Church in Texas City on March 20. Gospel music is more popular now than ever, and music of its kind has never been easier to find. Just look on iTunes, Pandora and last.fm. Its hits are annually nominated for both Grammy and Dove awards. And, of course, it is a Sunday staple at many local churches.
