The Oladipo Sisters Give Gospel An R&B Spin

Download Audio

We check in on the world of (very) young Gospel, with the Oladipo sisters, which includes five-year-old Olajuwon, ten-year-old Olayeni, 12-year-old Oladunni and two other sisters. Despite their youth, one singer, Oladunni, is already a veteran performer: she sang with the Boston Pops at the age of 8 and she sang the National Anthem at several Boston Celtics games.

The Canton, Massachusetts-based sisters have Nigerian roots, grew up in a "music loving" household and are now out with their first album,"The Mighty One." We speak with Oladunni, Olayeni and Olamide Oladipo. Hear songs off their new album below.
