  • Wikipedia, March 23 2015 (Sister Rosetta Tharpe; born March 20, 1915 in Cotton Plant, Arkansas; died October 9, 1973 in Philadelphia; singer, songwriter, guitarist and recording artist. A pioneer of twentieth-century music, Tharpe attained great popularity in the 1930s and 1940s with her gospel recordings that were a unique mixture of spiritual lyrics and rhythmic/early rock accompaniment. She became gospel music's first crossover artist and its first great recording star, referred to later as "the original soul sister". She was an early influence on figures such as Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis.)
