We received this message from a reader in Kentucky (Chris Conver) this morning asking for your participation in an Online Gospel Music Survey. I’ve already taken/tested it out, so it is a safe link for you to click on. Let’s help this teacher out with his research!
Here is the link for the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/9Q6VNPR
Here is the original request in it’s entirety:
Good morning, I don’t want to bother your followers, but I would like to see if they could take a survey for me. Any assistance would be appreciated. I am hoping to have at least several hundred folks respond. (I did reach out to Daniel Mount, and he kindly took the survey. He noted also that he was closing down his blog, and could not assist me further.) I am a teacher at a Christian university in Kentucky. This survey is a part of a course on “The Role of Gospel Music in American Christianity.” Participation will aid in gathering data for a project in this course. One need not like Gospel Music to take the survey (If you do not, at question #5, answer “No,” and go to the end of the survey). However, if you do like Gospel Music, your answers as to your reasons will be very helpful. No attempt is made to discover your identity. The survey seeks to find out the reasons why Gospel Music is popular, and identify, if any, correlations with demographic information (region of the country, age, education, etc.). There are two pages to the survey, and please only take the survey once. If you know of someone who enjoys Gospel Music, but may not know yet of this survey, please pass the link along to them, too. The more who participate, the better the results will be of the survey. The survey will stop receiving responses on Sunday, June 15, 2014 at 8 PM. Thank you in advance for your involvement.
