Something I found by accident that totally blew my mind.
Little Richard sings Gospel better than he does Rock and Roll, you can just hear his soul in that song, amazing.
You know Bogie, it's ironic people always talk about the influence of Jazz, Blues, Motown, Bluegrass, Country, Rock, Reggae, Big Band, and Heavy Metal, but them seldom mention the impact of Gospel music. Okay, Country artists might mention it at the Grand Ole Opry and around Christmas time, but Ray Charles successfully blended gospel with 50's and 60's rock, along with jazz elements, Southern Blues, and he created the genre known as Rhythm and Blues or at least perfected it. It made Ray rich and an international entertainer too.
