Brittany Howard & Questlove Perform At RRHOF Tribute To Sister Rosetta Tharpe
Alabama Shakes vocalist Brittany Howard and Questlove took part in the tribute to Sister Rosetta Tharpe at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Tharpe was posthumously inducted with the Award for Early Influence because of her pioneering contributions to rock and roll. Howard performed “That’s All” which Tharpe recorded twice and was a permanent song on her touring setlist. The induction is the first time Tharpe has received major recognition even though she is called the Godmother Of Rock and Roll because her work came before Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash and Little Richard who she actually put on stage for his first time.
