This event will feature a live performance from the Blind Boys of Alabama as well as an interview. The Blind Boys of Alabama are recognized worldwide as living legends of gospel music. They formed at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in 1939 and toiled for 40 years almost exclusively on the black gospel circuit, playing in churches, auditoriums, and even stadiums across the country. The Blind Boys of Alabama have profoundly influenced an entire generation (or two) of gospel, soul, R&B and rock musicians and are still blazing trails after all these years.
Tickets are $15 and are available through the Rock Hall website by clicking here or at the Rock Hall Box Office.

In memory of Phil Everly, who passed away in January of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the 2014 Annual Music Masters will create awareness for the disease, which affects an estimated 24 million individuals in the United States. The progressive lung diseases include emphysema, chronic bronchitis, refractory (non-reversible) asthma, and some forms of bronchiectasis. Despite being the third leading cause of death in the United States, there is very little research funding for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. COPD is a preventable and treatable disease but the lack of research, awareness and education has resulted in millions of unnecessary hospitalizations, complications and even deaths of patients. The COPD Foundation’s mission is to prevent and cure COPD and to improve the lives of all people affected by COPD.
