You Send Me

Twist the night away in the Reid Cabaret Theatre with the stories and music of the King of Soul, Sam Cooke. Singer, songwriter, entrepreneur and civil rights activist, Cooke fused soul and pop, pioneering the sound for future R&B artists. In 1960 his career skyrocketed from his first secular single “You Send Me,” which was followed by the chart-toppers “Chain Gang,” “Another Saturday Night” and “Cupid.” “A Change Is Gonna Come,” released following his untimely death, is regarded as the anthem for the civil rights movement. These timeless hits have been covered by musicians from Aretha Franklin to Van Morrison and Otis Redding to John Lennon, securing his lasting legacy. This show is suitable for most audiences.
