Religious music covers a wide range of genres, including church hymn, gospel, classical, country, and rock music, that is focused on putting the listener in touch with their spiritual side. Religious music performers usually write and record for Christian audiences. Popular acts in the genre include gospel singer Bill Gaither, contemporary Christian music artist Chris Tomlin, and Israel Houghton.
Though the sounds of gospel have long been considered religious music, recent decades have seen Christian music leave the pew and enter the concert venue, as new Christian artists took what were traditionally considered secular genres and used them to attract audiences with their religiously-inspired themes and lyrics. In recent years, artists and groups like Tomlin and Third Day have become tremendously popular on both the Christian albums chart and the Billboard 200.
