Interview with Rodena Preston. Gospel music is her whole life's work. Born into a musical family with ministers and piano players. She has been playing piano for church since age nine years. She has been involved with the Gospel Music Workshop of America since its birth. She wants the youth today to understand that it is possible to survive in gospel; the substance of the message will proliferate the genre. Although she cannot imagine where gospel music will go in the future, she trusts that it will continue to expand globally, reaching more people.
