- Five Blind Boys of Alabama (above) It’s almost unbelievable that a group of blind, African-American singers—who started out touring during a time of whites-only bathrooms, restaurants, and hotels—would go on to win five Grammy awards and a Lifetime Achievement Grammy, as well as be inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and perform at the White House for three different presidents.
- Fisk Jubilee Singers (above) The original Jubilee Singers introduced so-called slave songs to the world in 1871, and they were instrumental in preserving the unique American musical tradition known today as Negro spirituals.
