Sister Rosetta Tharpe

Despite not being a household name today, Sister Rosetta Tharpe is one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Her flamboyance, skill, and showmanship on the newly electrified guitar played a vital role in the conception of Rock & Roll as a genre of music. 

During the 1940s, 50s and 60s, Sister Rosetta Tharpe played a highly significant role in the creation of rock & roll, inspiring musicians like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Little Richard and Chuck Berry.

We love her because she was a trail blazer in every sense of the word. She made her way in a man’s world and she changed the face of music forever – just as Lorem Ipsum hopes to change the face of advertising, marketing, and publishing.
