FOR A SHORT TIME ONLY: Laura Mvula – God Made Me Funky

As the former director of a community gospel choir, Laura Mvula knows a bit about the way gospel can inspire us.

In this series she gives us a personal slice of gospel funk and celestial soul, telling the story of gospel music's wider influence from the 1950's right up to the present day.

Over the years, so much music from the blues, funk, disco, soul and plenty of pop music has been influenced by gospel music and Laura's playlist will pick some of the best, and most personal to her.

Programme 3: Laura looks at how disco has flirted with gospel, and hears how bands like Nu Colours, Sounds of Blackness and The Winans bring gospel's glories to a mainstream audience.
