I've been thinking since we are kind of a male dominated forum something typically known to be sung by a female would be a good twist, but at the same time participation is important.

For gospel, the most familiar song to me is definitely Amazing Grace. I'm agnostic, and that song can really move me. If I were to delve into soul songs that cover gospel topics I could list a lot, but since we went soul last month with Al Green. Soul is in some ways a secularized gospel with a lot of influence coming that direction.   

For pop, I've been more than a bit stumped. I have some good ideas, but a lot are very soul influenced pop. Trying to think of something that isn't Britney and very unappealing to my ears, and also isn't soul. I'd definitely sing this one:

Oh, by the way, do you think it would be possible to edit song titles into prior month's challenge topics?

July RnB - Let's Stay Together (Al Green)

Or something. I think it would be cool if people could browse and find a song they were interested in and participate in the challenge even if it wasn't current. As is, a bunch of months with genres will be increasingly tough to capture and maintain an onlookers interest.

My suggestions:

For Pop, Selfless, Cold and Composed by Ben Folds

 

And probably the most popular "Pop" song of this past year or so, Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran

 

For Gospel

Precious Lord

Not sure who this is by, but there are tons of expressions of this

The other song I was going to mention already got suggested here.

Yes, that's a good idea.
