    • More about Ray Sidney:  Black Gospel is a style of music made popular in Japan from the movie “Sister Act” with Whoopi Goldberg. The music is energy filled, inviting, and rhythmic. The definition for gospel is, “good news.” That good news is about hope, joy, peace, love, deliverance and salvation. God is all of these. Ray Sidney has been able to sing this style of gospel music in shopping malls, Starbucks coffee shops, hospital rooms, entrances of train stations, and public schools. He even filmed a segment on the TV show called, “Why Did you come to Japan

  • From Ray Sidney: "I spend 2-3 months a year teaching Black Gospel music workshops and singing in concerts all over Japan. God has given many opportunities for me to teach all over the world. always share in the workshops the reason why I do what I do. I love the Lord and I love to sing, but I don’t sing for my love of singing. I sing for my love of the Lord. That is the reason why I sing."
