The Blind Boys of Alabama play The Howard Theatre, joined by special guest Bettye LaVette. These six-time Grammy winners (including a Lifetime Achievement Award) are one of the South's most storied and influential vocal groups. First formed in 1939, they've performed together for over sixty years, melding classic gospel with authentic soul music. They are known to many from their appearances in film and television -- their performance of the spiritual "I Shall Not Walk Alone" was heard on the first season of Lost
and their rendition of Tom Waits' "Way Down in the Hole" served as the theme song for HBO's acclaimed The Wire
in its first season. With a voice as powerful as Etta James and a story as compelling as Tina Turner, Bettye LaVette is finally embracing the superstar status that has eluded her since the sixties. Justice has been served. Her time has come.
