The magic of the crossover! Imagine being so good that people just have to not only accept you, but ultimatel fall in love with you. That Was the power Sam Cooke had…mmmmm, mmmm, mmmmm

The sheltered boy here discovered Sam Cooke about six months ago…seriously, I know. A week doesn’t go by though without me jamming to Sam Cooke live at the Copa. Would have loved to have been able to jam to this guy live. NPR has good birthday tribute to him here http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2011/01/21/133090570/sam-cooke-at-80-the-career-that-could-have-been .

What would he have accomplished had he not died at 33. My very favorite singer… the GREAT Mr. Sam Cooke.
