The Blind Boys of Alabama Talkin’ Christmas! Gospel Concert
- When The Blind Boys of Alabama formed: in the late 1930s at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind
- Their tie to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: the gospel group provided the live soundtrack at many of his benefits
- When they first started receiving mainstream attention: in 2001 when they won their first Grammy Award for their album Spirit of the Century
- How many Grammy Awards they’ve earned since then: five
- Why HBO loves them: they sang the opening theme to the first season of The Wire
- Artists they’ve collaborated with throughout their 75-year career: Peter Gabriel, Tom Waits, Mavis Staples
- Their latest collaborator: Taj Mahal, who joined them for their holiday album Talkin’ Christmas!
- What to expect at the concert: Christmas tunes off the new album that, in true Blind Boys fashion, throw a little groove into the gospel, from an upbeat, hand-clapping take on “Do You Hear What I Hear?” to the funky title track
