ロゼッタ・サープ Sister Rosetta Tharpe

1915年3月20日にアーカンソー州コットンプラントで生まれ、1973年10月9日にペンシルヴェイニア州フィラデルフィアで死去しました。6歳の頃から、ホーリーネス教会の巡回説教師だった母に連れられて集会所を廻り、ゴスペル歌っていました。1938年にはキャブ・キャロウェイとコットン・クラブで共演しました。同年にデッカと契約し、メジャー・レーベルと契約した最初のゴスペル歌手となり、「Rock Me」でゴスペルでは最初のミリオン・セラーを記録しました。1940年代はラッキー・ミリンダー楽団を帯同しゴスペルとジャズを歌いました。1947年には自作したブルース形式を持ったゴスペル曲「This Train」や、ゴスペル歌手でありピアノ奏者のメアリー・ナイトと組んで歌った「Up Above My Head」で絶大な人気を博しました。ビック・ビル・ブルーンジー風の緩急自在のギターと、表情豊かで力強い歌には思わず惹き込まれます。その後、アメリカに止まらずヨーロッパへも巡業しています。
マヘリア・ジャクソンは『ブルーズは絶望の歌、ゴスペルは希望の歌』としてゴスペルだけを歌うようになりましたが、ロゼッタ・サープはクララ・ウォードに先駆けてゴスペルをナイト・クラブに持ち込み、垣根を越えて活動したのです。
