This Famous Arkansan Was Just Inducted Into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame
Each year the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducts a handful of new members to be included in the prestigious honor. The Hall includes standout artists from a variety of rock genres from James Brown to Aerosmith. The group of 2018 inductees included one of the most important influences to rock and roll, and she just so happens to be an Arkansan. Let’s listen to some of her tunes and learn more about Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
Turn on Sister Rosetta’s Didn’t It Rain for some musical accompaniment to today’s article.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
