Gospel Heritage is a brilliant new project from Platoon, celebrating Gospel Heritage Month this September. The project aims to tell the story of Gospel music through different lenses from across Africa, the UK, and Jamaica. Each artist provides their own unique sound and style, culminating in a diverse retelling of the Gospel Music story.
The playlist comprises of 11 Artists and 11 Tracks, with Gospel Sub-genres like R&B and Soul, Afro-gospel, Alt-pop, Dance, Reggae, and Country Gospel. It features brand new music from Sinach, Tim Godfrey, Chevelle Franklyn, Bishop John Francis, Becca Folkes, Sarah Teibo, Volney Morgan, Lurine Cato, Juanita Francis, Sharyn, and Isaiah Raymond.
Global gospel superstar Sinach leads the charge with her single “Winning”, a heartfelt song of declaration which affirms the infallibility of God’s Word.
The Waymaker singer says, “this song is the believer’s victory cry when faced with challenges and it comes from a place of absolute trust in God’s Word.”
On Gospel Heritage, she says, “The most exciting thing for me, about being part of the Gospel Heritage, is having a legacy that is about impacting the lives of people all over the world, by bringing to them, the Gospel in music, which in turn gives them hope, healing, joy, and encouragement. “

Tim Godfrey offers up “Evidence”, a mid-tempo song that can serve both as a testimony for what God has already done and as a prophetic declaration to receive what God has promised to do. The song came from a place of faith and thanksgiving.
On Gospel Heritage, Tim says, “I was truly excited to be a part of this project, with all of the super artists from different parts of the world. My team and I prayerfully searched for which song would work perfectly for this project. “
“The special part about this song is that it’s like a love letter to my wife. I remember singing it to her the day I wrote it, and I told her that she is the evidence of God’s promises in my life.”
