Wikipedia : This day (December 11, 1964), in Los Angeles, California, died Sam Cooke, an American gospel, R&B, soul, and pop singer.

Songs Of Sam Cooke : Sam’s father was Charles Cook Sr., a Baptist minister and his mother Annie May Cook. Besides Sam 7 other brothers and sisters were born. Charles was a travelling minister in the Church of God, a section of the Baptist faith started around 1900 that was less traditional. Elements that came back in the 1950’s in soul music were the fainting by the singer, the swinging and the call-and-response technique.

@allmusic : Equally important, he was among the first modern black performers and composers to attend to the business side of the music business, and founded both a record label and a publishing company as an extension of his careers as a singer and composer.

@last.fm : His first release was “You Send Me”, which spent six weeks at #1 on the Billboard R&B chart but which also had massive mainstream success, spending three weeks at #1 on the Billboard pop chart.
