About the Festival: Gospel music can trace its ancestry to the ceremonial music of West Africa, the spirituals and camp meeting hymns of the South, and the swinging jazz and blues of the urban North, but it all came together in Chicago. Thanks to the Chicago Gospel Music Festival, we gather each year to pay righteous tribute to America’s great musical art form on the holy ground where it was born.
