Sam Cooke - All Day Long

Don‘t know much about history...  

Sam Cooke is considered one of the „fathers“ of soul. Already as a child he performs together with his siblings. His first successes came with the band The Soul Stirrers. His first hit was as a solo artist with You Send Me. Cook wrote his own songs and founded his own label, which signed musicians such as Bobby Womack and Johnnie Taylor. He himself celebrates his greatest successes at RCA with world hits such as Cupid, Bring It On Home To Me and Wonderful World. The last proves to be an evergreen until today; whether in the jeans advertising of Levi‘s or through successful cover versions of Herman‘s Hermits, Bryan Ferry or Otis Redding. At the age of only 33, Sam Cooke dies. The motel manager Bertha Franklin shoots him in the Hacienda Motel in Los Angeles and later claims self-defense. The exact circumstances of his death remain unclear to this day. Posthumously, Sam Cooke receives all the major awards. A small excerpt: He is part of the Rock and Roll and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, he was also awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Rolling Stone magazine lists him 16th among the 100 greatest musicians of all time and fourth among the best singers of all time. What A Wonderful World...
