The Blind Boys Of Alabama | "Amazing Grace" Live At Blues & Brews

Testify! Hailed as "gospel titans" by Rolling Stone, The Blind Boys of Alabama first rose to fame in the segregated south with their thrilling vocal harmonies and roof-raising live show. Originally sprung from the halls of the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the 1930s when they were just kids, Jimmy Carter was one of the original members and is still performing today. They toured and raised their voices as part of America’s Civil Rights Movement. At this stage in their impossibly long and remarkable 70+ year career, the release and tour of the new GRAMMY-nominated album, Almost Home, can’t help but feel like their swan song, or like the culmination of their long journey. Watch this stunning rendition of the timeless song "Amazing Grace" performed live at the 2017 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.
