Gospel greats The Blind Boys of Alabama have an amazing career—since meeting at a Talladega institute for the blind in the 1930s and creating a band, they have toured continuously, amassing five Grammy Awards, and universal acclaim. They soared through the golden era of gospel in the 1950s, experienced difficult times when rock ’n’ roll took over, and resurged with the Broadway hit “Gospel at Colonus.” Now approaching their nineties, they are as vital as ever, collaborating with musicians like Peter Gabriel, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, and Ben Harper. Follow their remarkable story over ten years on the road and in the studio.
