I read a recent article about Baptist churches that are having difficulty finding “traditional” Gospel musicians due to the dumbing down of music with rap and hip-hop! (The kids who used to learn piano sitting on the bench next to a parent aren’t getting that experience any longer, they fear.) Apparently there are far fewer instrumentalists due to the ease of making “music” without the piano. Plus, many of there musicians aren’t willing to make less money by committing their talents to the church. I never thought of that.
