Johannesburg, 14 April 2022: Apple Music’s Spirits Rejoice campaign gathers the best and brightest gospel voices to amplify this time of joy through three exciting playlist takeovers by revered South African singer Dr Rebecca Malope (Spirits Rejoice), Nigerian singer Joe Praize (Worship Today) and Nigerian songstress Nosa (Gospel Flow), as well as an exclusive playlist from Nigerian worshipper, Dunsin Oyekan.
Spirits Rejoice aims to uplift and support the overarching message conveyed by these singers, with each playlist takeover and exclusive playlist highlighting and amplifying specific songs of encouragement and praise.
As one of the top-selling genres in the world, gospel music is characterised by emotion, choral voices, and soulful sound that moves the listener with every note, and African gospel has become one of the most popular genres on the continent over the last few decades, specifically in South Africa and Nigeria.
African gospel is uplifting, rhythmic, and spiritual and the lyrics reflect diverse worldviews, theologies, cultures, and experiences of Africans from all backgrounds.
