Sister Rosetta Tharpe

Happy Women's History Month everyone. I would like to take the time to do a few spotlights throughout March on those I haven't in the past but well deserve the recognition.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe was indeed the first rock artist, influencing so many singers after her time.

At just 23, Rosetta wrote her first hit, Rock me.

This documentary explores more in-depth into her life as a gay black woman singing and playing like nobody else. Miss Tharpe was undoubtedly an original.

Now I only learned about her a couple of years back to my surprise; if she were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I'm sure many others would learn from her too.

What women in history inspire you?


1. This week I watched this film. It was sweet, beautiful and made me want to write more.

2. A book I plan to read this month.

3. I watched this drum played on NPR's Tiny Desk, and now I can't stop thinking about it.

5. A recipe I want to try before the end of Winter.

Fun Facts about Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. This Summer I had the opportunity to step foot into the old apartment where Billie Holiday was discovered at to see a show.


  1. Amazing post dear

  2. Not sure if I've heard about her before, but she looks so pretty on this photo!
