Comparing European attempts and taking to skeptics, Asian does convincingly recreate the true black gospel sound, as demonstrated by exploring the origins of black gospel techniques.

Following gospel choirs in Japan, Korea, China and The Philippines it charts Asia's unique approach to the interoperation of black gospel through vocal techniques and music fusion.
