Personal Fact of Sam Cooke

Samuel Cook or Sam Cooke (as he was professionally known) was one of the greatest American singers. He was also a song writer, recording artist and entrepreneur. He is famously remembered as the King of Soul for his contribution to popular music and importance as a singer and composer within the genre. He was even credited as the the inventor of soul music by AllMusic biographer Bruce Eder.

He created a connection between soul and pop music, and boasted a diverse collection that entertained audiences belonging to varied ethnicities and cultures. He influenced other popular musicians like Aretha Franklin, Art Garfunkel, Rod Stewart, Bobby Womack, Curtis Mayfield, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Billy Preston, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding and James Brown. He delivered around 30 hits in eight years and even after death, three of his posthumously released songs became immensely popular.

Some of his hit songs are Chain Gang, You Send Me, Cupid, A Change Is Gonna Come, Wonderful World, and Twistin’ the Night Away. He was one of the pioneers who explored the business prospect of a musical career and launched his own record label and publishing company. He also actively participated in the Civil Rights Movement. He died at a young age of 33 and there was a lot of mystery and speculation surrounding the circumstances of his death.
