Since Blind Boys Of Alabama was founded in the 1930’s, the group has been a gospel institution. All these years later -- and especially with the new album I'll Find A Way -- the soulful singers continue to not only honor traditional gospel music, but push the envelope and expand the definition of the genre.

The new record was produced by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and includes an impressive cast of guest musicians -- from Patti Griffin and Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs to Sam Amidon, Shara Worden, and Casey Deniel of White Hinterland. 

This segment originally aired on Oct. 30, 2013.
