Sister Rosetta Tharpe's Ode to Rainy Days

MADELEINE BRAND, host:

And we have one final note on the rain, literally. It comes from the late, great gospel and blues singer, Sister Rosetta Tharp.

Well, we pulled out this old record from the 1940s, blew the dust off. Oh, all right, we downloaded it. Anyway, let's take a listen to Sister Rosetta's song, Didn't It Rain

(Soundbite of Didn't It Rain)

BRAND: Sister Rosetta Tharp singing Didn't It Rain, from a late 1940s recording. Well, here's hoping for some blue skies ahead. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
