Welcome to the
Western States Gospel
Music Association!

Welcome to the Western States Gospel Music Association website! We appreciate you stopping by and would like to hear from you. If you have any comments or questions please use the information on the Contact Page and we will be in touch.

The WSGMA exists to extend the acceptance, influence and use of traditional gospel music in churches throughout California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada and Arizona. Through the responsible, professional, positive and sensitive use of our talents and resources, we are determined to spread the gospel of Christ to uplift and encourage believers, and witness to those that are hurting.

There is information here on all of the Artists that make up the WSGMA. If you are an artist or a promoter looking to be connected with a Southern Gospel association, we hope you look us over and contact us.

Upcoming Events

The Western States Gospel Music Association is proud to present two annual concert events. In Southern California, our Spring Sing is held on the third Saturday of May. Then, in September, on Labor Day, we have our Labor Day Celebration in California's Central Valley.

One of the reasons the WSGMA exists is to 'promote' Southern Gospel music through concert events. Besides participating in them, many of the association Artists host concert events themselves throughout the year. Many times, these Artist concerts feature each other, local talent and full time Southern Gospel Artists that travel the nation.

Below are concert events of the WSGMA and our Artist members. We hope you will be a part of one or more of these concert events and experience some of the best music heard on the West Coast. Do yourself a favor and check them out... and bring a friend!!
