Summary

Summary

When Sam Cooke's You Send Me burst onto the pop scene in 1957, it was hailed as a phenomenal debut. In fact, Cooke was already a gospel star. His crossover into rock 'n' roll heralded the beginning of a new era. This intriguing biography presents the story of a man who not only helped to create and define a new music form--soul--but defined his times as well (The Washington Post). 34 photos.
