Rap Raps origins can be traced to West Africa. When slaves were brought to America, they mixed American music with the beats they remembered from Africa. It wasn't until the commercial success of "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugar Hill Gang, in 1979, that major record labels noticed of this new sound. Rap's audience started to grow with acts like Public Enemy, N.W.A., and Ice-T. More than 20 years have passed since then and rap still has a huge audience of people of all ages.


Pop The term pop music was first used in 1926, it was used to describe a piece of music having popular appeal. Music consisting of relatively short and simple love songs is known as pop music. Pop music history states that the term 'pop music' originated in Britain in the mid-1950s which implied “concerts appealing to a wide audience” or “the non classical music, usually in the form of songs”, performed by artists such as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Abba. Though pop music had been dominated by the American music industry, most regions and countries have their own form of pop music.


Gospel Gospel, means "good news“. It derived its name from it close connection with the gospels (books in the New Testament). Gospel music has a history which can be traced to the 18th century. Gospel music can stir many different emotions. Gospel music may have originated as hymns of praise and worship during religious gatherings, but it has grown into an independent form of music.


Country Although musicians had been recording fiddle tunes in the southern Appalachians for several years. It wasn't until August 1, 1927 in Bristol, Tennessee, that country music really began . Honky Tonk music personified the spirit of dancing and drinking, and of loving and then losing the one you love. The Nashville sound is a blend of pop and country that developed during the 1950s. The most infamous era in country music was in the early '80s. The Urban Cowboy movement led it away from its roots.
