The Blind Boys of Alabama
The performing core of the group consists of seven musicians, including three blind singers, original founding member Jimmy Carter, Ben Moore, and Eric "Ricky" McKinnie, the guitarist and musical director, Joey Williams, and a keyboard player, a bass player, and a drummer. One of the surviving founding members of the group, Clarence Fountain, tours occasionally with the current lineup, as his health allows.
Since their formation, Blind Boys of Alabama have made it their self-proclaimed goal to "spiritually uplift audiences". The gospel group has been a source of inspiration for those with disabilities. In the words of one of the group’s blind members, Ricky McKinnie, “Our disability doesn’t have to be a handicap. It's not about what you can't do. It's about what you do. And what we do is sing good gospel music.
