BEST BET: Gospel THE BLIND BOYS


OF ALABAMA Hope College, Holland Sept. 10, 8 p.m.; $6-$18 hope.edu, (616) 395-7890


THE BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA HAS been preaching the good word through rockin’ harmo- nies for more than 70 years, likely one of the few groups beating the Rolling Stones’ never-ending career. Pre-dating Elvis, Little Richard and Chuck Berry, the Blind Boys helped set the groundwork for the sound of soul and rock-n-roll. After meet- ing in 1939 at a school for the blind in Talladega,


the boys soon became fixtures on the touring gospel circuit, singing vivacious gospel tunes in churches across the map. While only one original founding member of the group remains (lead vocalist Jimmy Carter), the group has stayed true to its traditional southern-gospel roots. The group is currently touring in support of its first-ever country-gospel album Take the High Road, which features appearances from Willie Nelson, Hank Williams Jr. and Vince Gill. Back in the 1940s the group began recording records for notable labels like Specialty, Vee-Jay, Savoy, Elektra and others. They hit it big in 1948 with the soulful gospel ballad “I Can See Everybody’s Mother but Mine.” It wasn’t until after the group appeared on Broadway in Gospel at Colonus in the early 1980s that the group saw crossover mainstream success. Since then, the group has won a long list of honors including multiple Grammy Awards. They’ve entertained around the world, been profiled on “60 Minutes,” sung for two American Presidents at the White House and were inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
