My Favorite types of Music

Of all the types of music that I enjoy, two of my favorites are gospel and Rhythm and Blues (R&B); however, gospel is my favorite. It is my favorite because it is uplifting and encouraging. On the other hand, I also like listening to R&B. For example, when it’s time to clean up and I’m dragging around, R&B always pumps me up and gets me ready and energized.

It lets me know that when I have a problem or I am going through something; that I must pray, have faith and wait on the Lord to fix it. As a result of listening to gospel for seven days, I have learned to love and appreciate it.

Even though I enjoy gospel the most, R&B is my second favorite. I have always been a lover of this type of music. On the contrary, I love to lie in my bed at night and listen to “The Sweat Hotel”. It makes me think about my husband...
