Our Program Director had the opportunity to speak with Doobie Powell, who was very grateful that our staff selected him as our featured Gospel Jazz Artist. Doobie's music style and lyrics certainly expressed the Gospel Jazz genre today. Doobie is very confident in the gift God gave him and is very proud to express it through lyrics and music. We invite you to listen careful to the words in his songs as they truly touch the hearts of music lovers especially those of us who love the Jazz and R&B Gospel genre. The history of gospel jazz is the true foundation of all gospel genres, and Doobie Powell is blessed with the gift of having the ability to mix all gospel genres in his music.
Gospel Jazz Genre
Although some people believe that gospel jazz is a fairly recent type of music, its roots began long before the birth of most other musical forms, and impacted nearly all of them. Gospel jazz, also referred to as the blues, emerged out of the intense emotional experiences endured by downhearted people throughout history.
During the 18th century, the African slaves who tended the fields of the American South expressed their faith through songs called ‘Negro Spirituals’, which often included heart-wrenching cries, later adopted by the jazz sibling known as the blues. This deeply emotional and improvisational style of music told stories of sorrow that touched the soul of every music genre.

Pam Waters, the single mother of three is living proof that God can use you at anytime, at any age, and any way he chooses. Here's the singer-songwriter's debut gospel single Praise Your Blues Away. A beat dropping, thought provoking lyrical song reminding us all how to use the Word as your weapon and allow the Lord to win your battles.
MadeSacred's purpose has been enveloped in proclaiming the love of Christ to those who are willing to open their hearts, ears, and minds to Christ's life saving message. His eternal love of composing rap music for Christ is stronger than any form of tangible human love he has ever experienced in his life, next only to the love of his wife and baby daughter.
