WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Blind Boys of Alabama thrill and inspire audiences the world over. Formed in 1939, The Blind Boys still continue to create critically acclaimed recordings and reach new career heights even today. In recent years the group has won four consecutive Grammy Awards, were featured on 60 Minutes, Regis & Kelly, The Tonight Show and The Late Show with David Letterman, performed on the 2005 Grammy Awards telecast, and appeared in the 2003 movie The Fighting Temptations alongside Beyonce and Cuba Gooding Jr. They sang a Phil Collins tune in Disney's Brother Bear animated film, and were also the inspiration for the Steven Bochco TV series Blind Justice. The Blind Boys have also been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and awarded the NEA's Heritage Fellowship for Lifetime Achievement, as well as many other prestigious honors, earning them the true distinction of "living gospel legends."
