It is the singing of christian music with rhythms and beats in Jamaican reggae style. To understand this type of rhythm and beat you have to know how this music originated and ask the question What Is Reggae Music.
Reggae music started in the 1960s but reggae christian music started in the 1990s. So compared to other forms and genres of music and particularly to the gospel itself, it is very new.
These artists and evangelists believe that Christianity is all about spreading the message of Jesus's life and death, and so is reggae gospel. With its tenor-like, unique and crisp tone of gospel music, the sound is very charismatic.
From the early 2000s to-date, this form of music has gotten huge endorsements and appreciation. Gospel artists, composers and music teachers have all played a vital role in making it successful.
The younger generation are more acceptancing of this type of music which is still strongly opposed by some Christian ministries.
