Eisemann Center presents The Music of Sam Cooke: A Change is Gonna Come
Eisemann Center will present The Music of Sam Cooke: A Change is Gonna Come. The show depicts the life and music of one of America’s most iconic and talented performers, the legendary Sam Cooke, featuring singer Bradd Marquis.
Cooke pioneered soul by melding elements of R&B, gospel, and pop into a sound that was new and still coalescing at the time. His pioneering contributions to soul music led to the rise of Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and popularized the likes of Otis Redding and James Brown.
