Gospel Music’s Influence on American Idol

americanidolOn Thursday, April 23 at 7 PM ET, the Gospel Music Channel will air a new documentary called “From Idol to Inspiration”. The documentary will explore the relationship between American Idol and Christian/Gospel music.

American Idol has brought us a number of Christian artists like George Huff, Mandisa, Melinda Doolittle and Ruben Studdard. Clearly there is a connection between American Idol and Christianity and it isn’t a coincidence. The Lord is definitely using American Idol contestants to spread the gospel.

I am interested to see if other reality shows begin to show a strong Christian influence. Will we see a group of praise dancers on the next season of “America’s Best Dance Crew”? Will someone wow us on the next season of “America’s Got Talent” by playing the tamborine or washboard? I think American Idol is just the beginning. We are going to see a lot more Christian influence in main stream television.
