Sam Cooke
“Bring it on home to me”

For the next few days we’re going to be featuring some Classic R&B+Soul songs. It has to be done, trust me.

Sam Cooke was the son of a Mississippi preacher, and he spent his youth in church choirs and gospel groups. Tragically, Sam was shot and killed in 1964 in circumstances that were never fully explained.

It’s too bad – he was at the height of his career.

From the Album: Portrait of a Legend 1951-1964

    His voice gives me the chills, every time. So smooth and perfect. Why do the greats always die too soon, in some tragic way? Marvin Gaye anyone? Hope to hear some Marvin!

    What a great soul singer. Everytime I hear this song I think of my past back in the 60s. His voice is great. God has sent him here to let us enjoy his songs but why must he die. At what age did he die. Can someone tell me pls.
