Pratt remembers that the courthouse was packed with people saying amen and clapping their hands.

“Pentecostals clap off the beat,” she says. “We prefer our style of handclapping.”

I love listening to NPR.  Just this past week I heard another great story on All Things Considered.  If you have the time I really recommend listening to the story.  Here is the link and I have a provided a few others on Brother Ely and his music.
