New recordings added to Library of Congress

Aretha Franklin tells NBC's Brian Williams she found inspiration in gospel music at the New Bethel Baptist Church in Detroit.

The Library of Congress  have this year added several new recordings to the National Recording Registry.  Prince, Dolly Parton, Donna Summer, Booker T. and the MG's and Rapper's Delight by the Sugarhill Gang will all take their place in the vault of the iconic recordings of this country -- stored away and taken together: they tell the story of who we are.

The National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress is like America's playlist: a collection of some of the most significant audio recordings in the history of the United States. James Billington, the Librarian of Congress, explains the importance of preserving our great national moments: from rocking out with Bruce Springsteen to President Roosevelt's fireside chats.

Visit the National Recording Preservation Board of the Library of Congress to see a full list of recordings.
