Soaring Voices of Gospel
5/11/2016, 12:55 p.m.
When the legendary Gospel titans The Blind Boys of Alabama perform, it’s a roof-raising musical event. Their soaring voices and powerful energy have been thrilling crowds around the world for decades.
Stronger than ever, the five-time Grammy Award winners will be in Portland to perform Friday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.
The concert can be counted on for a truly uplifting experience. Since the original members first sang together as kids at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the late 1930s (including Jimmy Carter, who leads the group today), the band has perserved to become one of the most recognized and decorated roots music groups in the world.
