The Christian music industry is in a state of decline, according to numerous reports. But Gospel Music Association President and Executive Director Jackie Patillo says she has proof that Christian music still has a substantial impact on the Church community and beyond.

In new research presented by the Gospel Music Association and Christian Music Trade Association, it’s evident that Christian music still has a reach and influence that cannot be ignored, despite some media reports.

One of these reports is a recent article titled “Who Killed the Contemporary Christian Music Industry?” Its author, Tyler Huckabee of The Week, shed light on the fact that contemporary Christian music used to sell 50 million albums annually during its glory days. In 2014, however, that number had decreased to 17 million.

Patillo told The Christian Post why she believed it was important to compile and present her findings amid industry chatter about the decline of Christian music.
