OUR FOUNDER is Margaret Pleasant Douroux Ph.D.  The concept for the Gospel House was inspired by several spiritual, educational, musical, and philanthropic influences in her life that have helped to shape her career as an educator, school psychologist, composer, musician, church, and community leader.

Dr. Douroux, daughter of the late Rev. Earl A. Pleasant and Mrs. Olga Pleasant, was educated in the Los Angeles public school system.

HISTORY of GOSPEL

 

Around four hundred years ago secular music did not exist in the African tradition. African music was naturally sacred (Hymns & Psalms) and represented four areas in the Africans daily lives: 1) religious; 2) agricultural; 3) sexual and fertility; and 4) hunting and war.
