WATCH this interview with Jimmy Carter from the five-time Grammy Award winning Blind Boys of Alabama. Discover how these hip septuagenarians met back in 1939 in a school for the blind to eventually become inductees in the Gospel Hall of Fame.
Jimmy talks about how the Blind Boys first met and became friends with Lou Reed and collaborated with him in a very special version of the Velvet Underground's 'Jesus'.
You can see Lou, the Blind Boys and many other artists from the Vivid LIVE festival perform together on Saturday 5 June in the Concert Hall at Sydney Opera House. Don't miss this very special concert experience.
