A Pioneer
Sister Rosetta was an American 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.

Historical Influence

Musically, Rosetta Tharpe’s unique guitar style, blended with melody-driven urban blues and traditional folk arrangements, as well as incorporating a pulsating swing sound, is considered to be the first clear precursor to Rock & Roll.
