The Blind Boys of Alabama have the distinction of being recognized throughout the world as living legends of gospel.

They have left their mark on the 20th century, and continue to transmit in the 21st century, without ever ceasing to innovate.

Since 1939, this mythical group, in constant evolution, perpetuates the gospel tradition. He reinterprets the classics by adding Rolling Stones, Tom Waits and Ben Harper to his repertoire.

The story of The Blind Boys of Alabama dates back to 1939, when the very young Jimmy and his accomplices at the time joined a choir at Talladega’s Institute for the Blind Black. One day in 1948, the group is measured by a chorus of New Jersey during a friendly “battle”. To attract the public, the D.J. places decided to baptize the said battle “Battle of Blind Boys”. The name has remained. The vocation gospel too. Over the years, Blind Boys, holders of five Grammy Awards, have sung with an impressive number of artists of various stylistic allegiances (Tom Waits, Tom Petty, Charlie Musselwhite, Allen Toussaint, Bonnie Raitt, Peter Gabriel …) Without ever departing from their rule, summarized by Carter: “If others want to convert to R’n’B, no problem, but the Blind Boys will always be a group of gospel”.
