Prepare to be amazed as you watch Sister Rosetta Tharpe as she performs “Didn’t It Rain” in Manchester, England in 1964. Sister Rosetta Tharpe is often referred to as “The Godmother of Rock and Roll” or “The Original Soul Sister”. Her songs were an influence on notable singers like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and even Elvis Presley. I could listen to her sing all day long and never grow tired of her guitar playing and singing. Rock On Sister.
