Top 10 Female Christian Artists

Music that expresses and relates to Christian beliefs, life, and faith, is termed as Christian music. Over the years, there have been many popular female Christian artists who have mesmerized fans all over the world. Here's Buzzle's pick of the top 10 amongst them.
Did You Know?
Gospel music, before regaining popularity in the late '60s and early '70s, was widely popular during the period that followed the Second World War.

"Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul." ―Johann Sebastian Bach (composer and musician)

Music and God are closely related. One can find God and His divine presence in music. Christian music is the kind of music that is purely dedicated and relates to Christian beliefs. The songs mention God and the lyrics are in His direct praise. They reflect Biblical truth. Such form of music must have a subdued rhythm. However, there is no specific definition as to what constitutes Christian music.

There have been many male Christian artists and singers. However, there has been a good change in this front, with time. Now, there are numerous popular female Christian artists too. We'll have a look at ten of the best, in no particular order.
