Abstract: Dancehall Gospel is a form of Gospel music in Jamaica. As the name suggests, it has the musical character of Dancehall music, which is the mainstream form of popular music in Jamaica. Dancehall Gospel singers are called 'Gospel Deejays'. One of the characteristics which sets Dancehall Gospel apart when it is compared with other forms of gospel music in Jamaica is that while gospel singers and church choirs are predominantly female, most gospel deejays are male. This paper examines the image of the 'Christian' male, which Dancehall Gospel represents, and considers the influence that it has on Jamaican church communities. This paper also aims to construct a conceptual framework within which to study the influence of the male image on social groups. Chapter 1 reviews three major perspectives found in Caribbean masculinity studies and shows that they lack effective concepts with which to study the influence of a male image on social groups. Chapter 2 presents the background of Dancehall Gospel. It examines the male image represented by church and Dancehall respectively. Chapter 3 examines the male image created by Gospel Deejays through their stage performances and considers the influence of that male image on church communities in Jamaica. The last chapter makes several notes to construct the conceptual framework to study the influence of the male image on social groups.
