Sister Rosetta Tharpe (1915-1973). Rosetta Tharpe, raised by her mother, a travelling evangelist with The Church Of God In Christ, was performing from the age of six. She was spotted by John Hammond – who included her with Count Basie in his celebrated From Spirituals To Swing concert at Carnegie Hall – and soon after that she recorded ‘Gospel Train’. Aretha Franklin was just 14 when she recorded the 1956 album Songs Of Faith at the New Bethel Baptist Church, where her father was the reverend. Before crossing over into the world of mainstream entertainment, Franklin was a talented gospel singer (in the same way as Amy Grant, for example) and her voice was able to cope with the demands of the high and powerful notes needed to become one of the best gospel gospel singers on record.

Before Elvis and Johnny Cash became the hip swiveling faces of Rock & Roll, there was Sister Rosetta Tharpe, a well-deserving queer black woman who helped invent and usher in Rock & Roll as a genre of popular music, and who has been largely overshadowed by those who came after her, despite her invaluable cultural contributions to music - gospel and R&B, included. Her risk paid off: Once in New York, Tharpe played with musical legends like Duke Ellington. In her twenties, she toured around the south with the American gospel group, The Dixie Hummingbirds. In 1945, her gospel single, Strange Things Happening Every Day, became the first to cross over to Billboard’s race records chart, which later became Rhythm & Blues, ultimately today’s R&B.
