Mr. Soul: A Tribute to Sam Cooke

   
 

November 17th, 2010 ~ Tune in for a tribute to the man who melded gospel, soul and pop in music and life: Sam Cooke. We'll follow the singer from Clarksdale to Chicago and from the church to the Copa as he revolutionized gospel music with the Soul Stirrers and then secular music with self-penned hits "You Send Me," "Change is Gonna Come," and more. Plus an hour of the musical roots and branches of Sam Cooke.
