The performer of this Sam Cooke classic is 10 y.o. Jordan Hollins.
Known as the “King of Soul”, Cooke was born in Mississippi in 1931, and later moved to Chicago . Like Jordan, Sam Cooke began singing as a young boy. He went on to write hits like “You Send Me”, “Wonderful World”, “Chain Gang”, “Another Saturday Night”, and “Twistin’ the Night Away”.
Cooke’s music contributed to the careers of such greats as James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Wonder.
Sam Cooke is, himself, a charter member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was, also, important to the civil rights movement. “Change Is Gonna Come” became an anthem of the movement.
Cooke died at the age of 33 from a gunshot wound. The circumstances of his death are disputed. He was posthumously inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and National Rhythm and Blues Music Hall of Fame.
To achieve peace, we must fight for justice and work for change.
“But let justice run down like water, And righteousness like a mighty stream” (Amos 5: 24).
