In Focus: Sister Rosetta Tharpe


Focus on Sister Rosetta Tharpe

Criminally underheard & deeply influential, Sister Rosetta Tharpe was inducted into the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame in 2018, a move that was long overdue. Bringing pop structure to gospel music, and helping popularise the electric guitar, she was a foundational figure in 20th Century popular music.

This In Focus is an hour long sermon of Sister Rosetta's emotional gospel & proto-rock'n'roll.
