The great B.B. King celebrated his 80th birthday September 16. Here's a report from NPR's News and Notes, and an interview that ran on Fresh Air.
King's gospel albums include Songs of Praise, Favorite Gospel Hymns and B.B. King Sings Spirituals, which includes "Jesus Gave Me Water." My current B.B. King favorite? "I Like to Live the Love I Sing About," which you can see on B.B. King: Live in Africa.
