|Physical Description:||69.00 boxes (105 linear feet)
|Scope and Content:||The collection was donated by Mark Allen Powell after the creation of his Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music. The collection contains a wide variety of materials related to contemporary Christian music such as LPs, CDs and subject folders. Contemporary Christian music (CCM) is represented by performers and groups performing in a musical style that was influenced by urban folk revival, rock music, or mainstream popular music of the 1960s through the 1980s. Several gospel musical styles are represented: urban, northern U.S., white gospel style (typical of northern evangelical churches and parachurch ministries); rural, southern U.S., white gospel style; and black gospel style (typical of northern, urban, African American churches). The collection is predominantly focused on years 1995-2000 with some material stretching outside that range. The collection covers a wide variety of genres within contemporary Christian music. Some examples include industrial, ska, rap, folk and pop. The collection includes information on artists both well known and those that few have heard of. The subject folders that Powell created were used to contain gathered material over the course of his research. Folders contain printouts of various websites as well as photocopies of magazines. These printouts detail the impact of each artist or group over the years. Various folders have additional color marketing material or newspaper clippings. Some folders also contain handwritten material by Powell that he created over the course of his research. The series for this collection are based upon material type.
