Arkansas native, Sister Rosetta Tharpe (1915 - 1973), was the first celebrity of recorded gospel music.

Tharpe first learned music and performance in church alongside her mother, quickly mastered the guitar, and soon incorporated her innovative style in unprecedented ways that would influence the development of American rock-and-roll for the next half-century.

Stick around afterward for a guided tour of Miss Laura's!
