Christian pop artists combine pop music with Christian themes. Although pop music is incredibly similar to contemporary Christian music in many ways, the two genres are not the same.
While contemporary Christian music transforms old Christian hymns and gospel songs into a more modern style, Christian pop music is new music usually written by Christian pop musicians, that follows Christian themes.
Interestingly, Christian pop artists mix many different genres. One of the main linking factors between pop and Christian music is that pop music was actually inspired by the use of vocal harmonies found in traditional gospel songs.
Today, Christian pop artists play music that can be heard at festivals, on radio stations and on music streaming services.
