Guitar virtuoso Sister Rosetta Tharpe was a rock & roll pioneer, a bold woman who wasn’t afraid to sing about her faith or her sexuality, she also challenged those who didn’t believe women could make their own business decisions. In doing so, she broke every “social norm”. She attained popularity in the 1930s and 1940s with her gospel recordings, characterized by a unique mixture of spiritual lyrics and rhythmic accompaniment that was a precursor of rock and roll. She was the first great recording star of gospel music and among the first musicians to appeal to rhythm and blues and rock and roll audiences, later being referred to as "the original soul sister" and "the Godmother of rock and roll". In May 2018, Tharpe was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as an Early Influence.
