Sam Cooke was a trailblazing song writer and recording artist in the 1950s and 1960s. Cooke helped shape the soul and pop scene with hits like "You Send Me," "Chain Gang" and "Twistin' the Night Away". Sam started to sing professionally at the age of six. By the time he was in his twenties he was a music superstar. That all came to a tragic end in December 1964 when Cooke, at age 33, was murdered in a seedy Los Angeles motel. Many questions regarding his death remain unanswered to this day.
