Bil Carpenter relates such tales as how Philip Bailey's record label pressed him to make gospel music that sounded like his pop hit "Easy Lover;" how a sex scandal almost silenced the Boys Choir of Harlem; and how Gloria Spencer - billed as the world's largest gospel singer at 615 pounds - suffered a circus-like exploitation. The book also includes a glossary of gospel terms, trivia tidbits, lists of the all-time best-selling gospel recordings, gospel songs that crossed over to R & B charts, and gospel Grammy, Dove, and Stellar award winners." ;
