Muzica gospel sau, mai simplu, gospel (din engleză: gospel = evanghelia, știrea bună; derivat din engleza veche unde gōdspel, gōd = bun, și spel = povestire, știre[1]) este muzica creștină afroamericană din secolele XX și XXI. Mai exact, gospelul este muzica bisericească a comunităților creștine afroamericane, în principal corală, caracterizată prin influențe de jazz și blues.

Precursoarea gospelului a fost muzica de gen Negro spiritual.

Termenul se mai folosește azi și cu semnificația lărgită, mai generală, de muzică creștină din zonele anglo-saxone, sau și de muzică pop creștină.
