Solomon Burke Dies

On October 10 the great soul singer Solomon Burke died.  He started singing in the sixties, but enjoyed a revival in 2002 with the release of his new album Don't Give Up On Me.   Burke was an undertaker and was trained early in life as a mortician.  Burke was a great singer that brought power and emotion to his singing.   This is one of my favorite songs of all time, the title track from his 2002 album.

I didn't see this news. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I've only heard a small selection of his music, but I enjoyed what I heard.

Found you from the Dona Nobis Pacem. I love your site. I’m going to poke around a little bit, but don’t worry I’ll put everything back where I found it!!
