Janis Joplin. Born on January 19, 1943, in Port Arthur, Texas. Breaking new ground for women in rock music, Janis Joplin rose to fame in the late 1960s and was known for her powerful, blues-inspired vocals. She grew up in a small Texas town known for its connections to the oil industry with a skyline dotted with oil tanks and oil refineries. For years, Joplin struggled to escape from this confining community and spent even longer to trying to overcome her memories of her difficult years there.

Developing a love for music at an early age, Joplin sang in her church choir as a child and showed some promise as a performer. She was an only child until the age of 6 when her sister Laura was born. Four years later, her brother Michael arrived. Joplin was a good student and fairly popular until around the age of 14 when some side effects of puberty started to kick in. She got acne and gained some weight.

At Thomas Jefferson High School, Joplin started to rebel. She eschewed the popular girls’ fashions of the late 1950s, often choosing to wear men’s shirts and tights or short skirts. While she liked to stand out from the crowd, Joplin also found herself the target of some teasing and a popular subject in the school’s rumor mill. She was called a “pig” by some while others said that she was sexually promiscuous.

Joplin eventually developed a group of guy friends who shared her interest in music and the Beat Generation, which rejected the standard norms and emphasized creative expression. Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg were two of the leading figures in the movement.

Musically, Joplin and her friends gravitated toward blues and jazz music, admiring such artists as Leadbelly. She also was inspired by legendary blues vocalists Bessie Smith and Ma Rainey and Odetta, an early leading figure in the folk music movement. The group also frequented local working-class bars in the nearby Louisiana of Vinton. By her senior year of high school, Joplin had developed a persona of sorts — a ballsy, tough-talking girl who like to drink and be outrageous.

After graduating high school, Joplin enrolled at Lamar State College of Technology in the neighboring town of Beaumont. There she spent more time hanging out and drinking than on her studies. At the end of the semester, Joplin left school. She took some secretarial courses at Port Arthur College and moved to Los Angeles in the summer of 1961. This first effort to break away from home failed, and she returned to Port Arthur and her studies at Lamar for a time.

In 1962, Joplin left again to study at the University of Texas at Austin. There she started performing at folksings — casual musical gatherings where anyone can perform — on campus and at a local club with the Waller Creek Boys, a musical trio she was friends with. With her forceful, gutsy singing style, Joplin amazed many audience members. She was unlike any other white female vocalist at the time — folk icons Joan Baez and Judy Collins were known for their gentle sound. ~

The massacre at the Emanuel AME church in Charleston, South Carolina, in June is just the latest in a string of racially charged events that have broken my heart. There are a lot of things to fix in this world, but history says if we don’t address this canker, centuries in the making, these things will continue to happen. No matter what level privilege you have, when the system is broken everybody loses. We all have to speak up when injustice happens. No matter what. And music is one of the best way I know to do so. —Rhiannon Giddens

Ghost hunting in Iowa looking for Cry Baby Bridge!
Ottumwa, Iowa locals claim that a mother had her newborn baby baptized in at the Mars Hill Church. Later that day, she threw it in the river off the near by bridge. Locals also claim that if they turn off the lights of their car while sitting on the bridge, that they will hear the disembodied sounds of a baby crying. Did we wait till sundown to sit on a bridge…. no but he had a pretty big adventure.

While researching for our road trip thought Iowa, Natalie discovered a story about a haunted bridge. Suckers for ghost stories… how can we resist. After driving down a dark and scary (probably private road), visiting the Mars Hill Church and cemetery, we found the new bridge. Natalie, not content to just let this go, decided that we need to get out of the car and going tromping up and down the river bed looking for the pillars of the old bridge and stoping every so often to listen for the cry of a ghost baby. Did we debunk the bridge… no. Did we scare ourselves silly and have a blast in the mean time…. HELL YES! Ghost hunting fail but adventure for the win!

Chad lifts a clarion call for revival at Church Alive International in Cleveland, OH and the world. Join him at the alter as he summons the church to cry out for revival and hear a priceless song of the Lord for the lost, the children caught in sex trafficking and more. “Let the priests, who minister before the LORD, weep between the portico and the altar. Let them say, “Spare your people, LORD. Do not make your inheritance an object of scorn, a byword among the nations. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?”
