Never been to an AA wedding, but what about the golden oldies like Amazing Grace, or Shine Jesus Shine?

@couvperr13:  Me too! I wanted it at ours but Fiance pulled a face and said it was really overdone 🙁

Wow, just done a Google search… never realised it was so hard to find nice gospel songs. You could maybe try this site…

http://cyberhymnal.org/ttl/ttl-a.htm

It’s not about gospel, but it does give a nice list of hymns in general, some of which can be adapted for a gospel choir. For example, I think Abide with Me or Abide with Thee can be sung as a gospel song, but I can’t recall which is which! You could have a flick through for some inspiration, maybe?

@couvperr13:  Amazing Grace is always beautiful…in searching for some songs to help you, I came across a song called The Prayer by Donnie McClurkin & Yolanda Adams.

It was my first time hearing it and it sounded beautiful!  I never thought of playing a gospel song until I heard this…I hope I can convince my fiance to add it to our program somehow.

Hallelujah (the song made famous by Shrek) is also beautiful

Also, check this site out for more suggestions:

Look on Amazon they have a bunch of good gospel Cds that are just for weddings. The one I like is called With This Ring…Forever I do.

@couvperr13:  Are you looking for regular gospel songs, or gospel songs that could have more of a “romantic” meaning? (Like songs talking about loving Jesus that could be flipped to talk about your husband or wife?)

And if you’re looking for love songs, Fred Hammond has a whole album of love songs. I think it’s called God, Love and Romance. Also, there’s a song called “The Lady, Her Lover and Lord” by T.D. Jakes.

If you’re looking for straight-up gospel, I can try to think of some of those, too.

  • Wedding: February 2014 - Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts

Gospel artists/songs I may use during ceremony if I don’t get a String Quartet: I Promise By CeCe Winans, I Found Love by BeBe Winans, We Worship You and My Everything By Cheneta Jones.  Cheneta Jones’ voice is amazing.
