Who is the woman playing the SG guitar in the archive footage featured in Amelie?

Coloured lady rocking out on a guitar shaped like a Gibson SG amongst a group of people, part of the video of inspirational things Amelie gives to Dufael. I unfortunately don't have a screenshot, just hoping someone knows what I'm talking about..

I think it's Sister Rosetta Tharpe. And so does wikipedia, now that I actually read the article.

Since the question has been answered, I'll tack on mine - does anyone know the origins of any of the other clips used in Amelie?

Follow on via Wikipedia and you'll find a list of the clips. At least some of them.
