Als siebter Sohn eines schwarzen Baptistenpredigers kam Sam Cooke 1932 in Chicago zur Welt. Er wuchs in einer Umgebung auf, in der die Musik eine zentrale Rolle spielte - sie war unverzichtbarer Bestandteil des Lebens!
Schon während seiner Schulzeit in der Wendell Phillips Highschool gehörte Sam einem Musikensemble an, das sich »The Highway« nannte.
1951 wurden die Weichen für sein weiteres Schicksal gestellt: Sein Auftritt mit den »Soul Stirrers«, denen er den Sänger R. H. Harris ersetzte, wurde zu einem grandiosen Erfolg für Sam. Er hatte nun zu seinem eigenen Soul-Interpretationsstil gefunden, der für viele Künstler der nachfolgenden Generation als Vorbild und Anregung diente. Sogar die legendären »Rolling Stones« übernahmen später zahlreiche seiner Stilelemente!
Sam gab sich mit dem bisher Erreichten aber nicht zufrieden. Deshalb versuchte er sich mit einer Gospelgruppe auch an religiösen Gesängen. Der Erfolg schien ihm sicher, als die Firma, die diese Lieder aufgenommen hatte, sich plötzlich gegen die gleichzeitige Vermarktung von geistlichen Gospelsongs und Soul zu wehren begann. Das war auch der Grund dafür, dass der Titel "You Send Me" (1953) nur als Single auf den Markt gebracht wurde. Die Bedenken der Schallplattenfirma schwanden jedoch, als sich der Titel auf Anhieb 2,5 Millionen Mal verkaufte...

"You Send Me" war gleichzeitig der Katalysator für Sams meteorhaften Aufstieg als Popsänger. Er hatte so viel Erfolg, dass er als einer der ersten farbigen Vokalisten einen eigenen Musikverlag (Kags Music) gründete. Schließlich konnte Sam auch noch eine Plattenfirma, Sar Derby Records, sein eigen nennen. Er stand auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Karriere, als er am 11. Dezember 1964 von einer Hotelmanagerin, die ihn irrtümlicherweise für einen Einbrecher hielt, erschossen wurde. Millionen von Menschen trauerten um ihn, dessen Bedeutung für die schwarze Bevölkerung Amerikas oft mit der von 'Malcolm X' und 'Martin Luther King' verglichen wurde.

(aus dem Sampleralbum 'Great Romantic Memories')
