Kosher gospel is the marriage of Jewish religious lyrics and meanings with the soulful sounds of American gospel music. For Joshua Nelson, kosher gospel is a way to claim both parts of his identity as a gospel singer and as a Black Jew. For his audiences, whatever their faith or heritage, kosher gospel has been a revelation. Now in his early thirties, Nelson has performed around the world, for Presidents, congregations, major music festivals—and for Oprah, who named him a “Next Big Thing.” Single tickets: $20.
