Hi, I am specialized in Gospel, Gospel Funk, Gospel Soul, Funk, ... from England. If you can give me further information about British Gospel Fusion band such as "Paradise", "Kainos", .. Get in touch with me ! Paradise represented a unique subgenre of UK Black gospel music which was influenced by the 70's Giants such as Commodores and Earth Wind and Fire.Goups such as Kainos, Clarity and InnerVision rejected the traditional approach to gospel music and adopted Funk as their vehicle.
