Who decides what “holy“ sounds like?

It’s 1939. Evangelical Christians and gospel music listeners have decided Sister Rosetta Tharpe has lost her way. Her music is too risqué and her sound is too cavalier. But this young woman from Cotton Plant, Arkansas, stitches together a musical palette of Mississippi Delta, Chicago blues, Philadelphia church music, and New York swing to create an entirely new sound, and in the process, becomes the renowned female gospel singer considered by many to be the “Godmother of Rock’ n’ Roll.”
