71 Benny Hinn

Pastor Benny Hinn is a truly anointed man of God, his songs of worship is really touching and full of anointing. His strong relationship with The Holy Spirit really makes his songs to be so powerful. I personally believe that with the incoming of the third Pentecost wave, he will truly used by God to make "Unlimited Miracle". Jesus bless him

He has worship songs a like so much. Especially his pianist.

77 Rev James Cleveland

There will never be any singer (male) to surpass him. I will never get rid of my James Cleveland music. There are some
That are good but, not better.

So sad... every singer you listed came from the works of the rev. james cleveland... Even the gospel cords they use... His life was all about james cleveland presents... So who ever is running this servey really don't know any history of gospel music and should find something else to do... Be blessed or informed...
