Shout, sister, shout! : the untold story of rock-and-roll trailblazer sister Rosetta Tharpe
Long before "women in rock" became a media catchphrase, Rosetta Tharpe proved that women could rock. Born in Arkansas, in 1915, she was gospel's first superstar and the pre-eminent crossover figure of its "golden age" (1945-1965). Everyone who saw her perform said she could "make that guitar talk." An African American guitar virtuoso, Tharpe defied categorization. Blues singer, gospel singer, folk artist, and rock-and-roller, she "went electric" in the late 1930s, amazing northern and southern, U.S. and international, and white and black audiences with her charisma and skill. Ambitious and relentlessly public, Tharpe even staged her own wedding as a gospel concert-in a stadium holding 20,000 people!
