President Bush hosted an event in honor of Black Gospel Music Month at the White House.

Bush spoke about the birth of black gospel music out of injustice and slavery, and its ongoing enrichment of our culture today.

"Gospel music continues to provide strength for our communities and it is making the good news sound sweeter than ever," he said.

Among the performers were Edwin and Walter Hawkins and vocalist Spensha Baker.

They will be honored Wednesday at a Grammy salute to gospel music in Washington, D.C.
