The great soul pioneer Sam Cooke died 45 years ago today. Sam Cooke possessed one of the finest soul voices of all time and has been a huge inspiration to countless artists.
Just last year, Sam Cooke’s civil rights anthem ‘A Change is Gonna Come’ was featured prominently during Barack Obama’s election campaign. Others have covered it, including Otis Redding and recently Seal, but none match the masterful delivery of Sam Cooke on the original. On this 45th anniversary of his death, take a few minutes to listen to this superb performance and remember why Sam was so revered among his peers and continues to delight fans to this day.
