Sounds of Summer: Sam Cooke ~ A Change Is Gonna Come

01/06/2011 § Leave a comment

“Considered by many to be the definitive soul singer, Sam Cooke blended sensuality and spirituality, sophistication and soul, movie-idol looks and gospel-singer poise…Cooke was shot to death at a Los Angeles motel on December 11th, 1964, under mysterious circumstances. RCA posthumously issued “A Change Is Gonna Come.” Regarded as one of the greatest singles of the modern era, it matched a hard-hitting R&B number with a haunting song about faith and reckoning that returned Cooke’s voice to its familiar gospel home.”  —The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
