A new radio documentary will highlight the roots of gospel music during Black History Month. The four-part documentary is called "Gospel Roots of Rock and Soul," and Grammy Award-winning gospel musician, Cece Winans will host the program. 

Bob Marovich is a historian and founder of the Journal of Gospel Music. He spoke with "On Second Thought" host Virginia Prescott about his contributions to the project. Marovich also told how Rosetta Tharpe, Aretha Franklin and Chance the Rapper have all incorporated praise music into hip-hop and rhythm and blues.
