    Blind Boys of Alabama

     When the Blind Boys of Alabama met at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in 1939, they never thought they’d eventually become living legends of gospel music. Celebrated by The National Endowment for the Arts and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences with Lifetime Achievement Awards, inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, and winners of five Grammy® Awards, they have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans over 60 years and shows no signs of diminishing. Longevity and major awards aside, The Blind Boys have earned praise for their remarkable interpretations of everything from traditional gospel favorites to contemporary spiritual material, and their performances have been experienced by millions on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, the Grammy® Awards telecast, 60 Minutes, and on their own holiday PBS Special. The Blind Boys' live shows are roof-raising musical events that appeal to audiences of all cultures. Their most recent album, Take The High Road, was co-produced by Jamey Johnson and is available now.
