    Sister Rosetta Tharpe

    How does talent like this escape history.

    I feel ignorant. Grew up on Chicago blues.
    This lady is among the best ever. Wow.

    Chuck Berry once said his entire career was “one long Sister Rosetta Tharpe impersonation.”
    Johnny Cash, during his induction speech at the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame, said she was his favorite singer.
    Jerry Lee Lewis, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Little Richard—they ALL acknowledge her influence.
    Actually, Little Richard said playing with her was a highlight of his life.
