Fierce and fiery singer Kimberly Nichole exploded onto the music scene as a contestant on The Voice, belting and stomping her way through one show-stopping performance after another. Since the competition, she's shared the stage with fellow rock & soul artists like Living Colour, Janelle Monae and The Heavy. Now, the New York-based spark plug is channeling a bygone kindred spirit: pioneering singer-guitarist Sister Rosetta Tharpe. The often-overlooked "Godmother of Rock 'n' Roll" recorded her gospel-tinged vocals and genre-defining guitar licks in the '40s, paving the way for the likes of Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley. But Tharpe was, in the words of Guitar World, "simply ahead of her time. Maybe even by several decades." With this Subrosa tribute concert, Kimberly Nichole shines a well-deserved spotlight on Tharpe's legacy. Don't be surprised if you hear her covering vintage hits like "Down by the Riverside" and "Strange Things Happening Every Day."
