The Gospel group Soul Tempo has been influenced by many music artists, such as Mary Mary, Kirk Franklin, Boys II Men, Adele and Lionel Richie. Their music influences have helped to shape their journey as artists and how they approach writing and producing new songs.

During an interview with news writer, Gil Shalowitz of, Soul Tempo shared advice they received from Multi-platinum selling artist, Lionel Richie on why to include the concept of love in their music:

“We sat down with Lionel Richie in his trailer and he made a good point. He made a great point. He said, “If you write about love, it’ll never die.” So we put a little bit of that into our Christian music. God wants to save every soul. Even if someone doesn’t listen to Christian music, you still want to capture them. We were in Philadelphia, this girl was listening to one of our records and she started to cry. It hit her in her heart and she wasn’t a Christian.”.
