Sister Rosetta Tharpe – Up Above My Head, Live

To me, vintage Black gospel the most uplifting, powerful music ever created, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe was one of the absolute best. Besides singing spirituals that move you to your core, she pretty much set the model for rock and roll as we know it.

If you aren’t hip to her, get hip quick. Here she is performing live in the 60s.
