I just watched a brilliant documentary on NETFLIX about the legendary Sam Cooke.. He was a truly exceptional singer songwriter whose music crossed racial, social and economic boundaries. He had a vision to create his own record label (SAR Records), so he had control over the publishing of his songs.. He tried to break down racial barriers at a time of terrible segregation in the US.. A brave civil rights activist, who tried to shift injustice against African Americans –
‘A Change is Gonna Come’
He was tragically killed in really strange circumstances at the age of 33. Cut down in his prime. Such a sad loss…He had too little time in this world and so much brilliance to offer…This amazing King of Soul🥀
