A singer can be a lively addition to many events, helping to raise people's interest and encourage them to stick around to enjoy one or more performances. There are all sorts of singers you can find online who specialize in performing at various events, so it's a good idea to take your time to find one or more performers who will suit the type of event you're holding. If you're holding a religious event—perhaps a fundraiser for a local faith-based organization, for example—here are some singers you may wish to have perform.
One type of singer to consider hiring for your upcoming event is a gospel performer. Browse some local artists' websites to watch video clips of their various performances, and you'll likely be impressed with the passion with which many of them sing. Gospel music has a real ability to connect the audience, and you may find that the overall atmosphere of your gathering improves just a short period of time into the gospel singer's performance. You have the option of hiring a gospel singer on their own or getting a small group of singers.
Christian Hip-Hop Artist
Christian hip-hop is a popular sub-genre of this urban type of music, and it can be a good fit for events that have a religious theme and that cater to adolescents and young adults. Performers in the Christian hip-hop world share messages that are positive and aim to uplift; you don't need to worry about hearing any of the troublesome messages that are present in certain other forms of hip-hop. Many Christian hip-hop artists perform as solo acts, but it's common for these performers to use a DJ in their performances.
Christian Rock Band
Another option to think about is hiring a Christian rock band for your event. Like Christian hip-hop, these performers share uplifting messages with a spiritual theme, making these songs appropriate for lots of different events. You generally have a couple of options once you identify a local Christian rock band that you think would be a good fit. One option is to have the group perform acoustically, which can work well in small venues. For large venues and outdoor spaces, a performance with electric guitars can add an exciting feel to the gathering. Look online for these or other singers to hire for your event.
