  •  Hey Joe - I've never listened to a lot of gospel, (5+ / 0-)

    not a fan.  Can't deny the influence though - on music and artists.

    Doesn't Haiti still have thousands living in tents?  Probably could've found a better use for $300m.

    •  i've never been a huge gospel fan either... (4+ / 0-)

      but there are some gospel artists that are just so compelling that they have made it into my collection.  the staples are one such group, sister rosetta tharpe, mahalia jackson, aretha franklin, blind willie johnson, rev. gary davis come to mind immediately.

      i haven't followed haiti closely, but it's a fair bet that they are still on the cusp of disaster most of the time.

      i'm part of the 99% - america's largest minority
