My Top 100 Gospel Songs of All Time

Music That Brings Healing

By Cathy (Christine Acheini) Ben-Ameh Published about a year ago 5 min read

Worship Music has been a major healing tool for me in the last year and has quickly become my favourite genre of music to make and listen to. One Saturday morning, as I lay in bed a little longer, I listened to Dunsin Oyekan’s new album, “The Birth of Revival” I started to reminisce on my favourite 100 worship songs. This list is not in order of preference but in order of how each song came to my remembrance.

According to 13 Christian Music Industry Statistics and Trends -

1. Christian/Gospel music is considered one of the fastest-growing areas in recorded music history.

2. Total music sales are more than a half billion annually.

3. There are more than 1,400 radio stations and 80 million listeners of Christian/Gospel music.

4. Listeners age 12 and up spend an average of 9 hours per week with Christian/Gospel radio programming formats.

5. 73% of Christian/Gospel listeners are 25-54 years old and account for more than 50% of all record sales.

6. Women 25-44 define the core Gospel/Christian music consumer.

7. Major mainstream brands such as Pepsi MidAmerica, Cracker Barrel, Allstate, NASCAR and McDonald’s, among others, have aligned with Gospel/Christian artists, releases and festivals and events to promote their brands.

That said, here are my top 100 gospel songs of all time. You can enjoy them in a playlist I have compiled on Spotify for about ten hours of your listening pleasure. All you have to do is click on the above Spotify playlist to listen.
