Thomas A. Dorsey. Thomas Dorsey is often called the father of Gospel Music. His father was a minister; his mother a piano teacher. He played blues piano until personal tragedy led Dorsey to leave secular music behind and begin writing and recording what he called gospel music -- Christian praise combined with the rhythms of jazz and blues. After his first wife and son died in childbirth he wrote his most famous song, "Precious Lord Take My Hand." Dorsey opened the first gospel music company, was the first African American elected in the Nashville Songwriters International Hall of Fame and to the Gospel Music Association's Living Hall of Fame.
