Abstract

The principle objective of this study is to examine how Lucie Eddie Campbell significantly impacted black church music with her trailblazing labor in Gospel. Many of her songs were birthed from her experiences, pain, and disappointment. I examine her lyrics, rhythm, and melodic formation.The document includes an introductory chapter, a biography, subsequent chapters on Lucie Campbell as educator and church musician, an analysis chapter on four musical arrangements of "Something Within," and a summary chapter. The introductory chapter outlines my document and presents an overview of Campbell's life, highlighting her work with the National Baptist Convention, U.S.A., as composer and educator. The biography presents an overview of Campbell's childhood, education, and work as a church musician. The musical arrangement chapter details the stylistic features, interpretations, and implications of Campbell's song "Something Within."
