Sam Cook (1931 – 1964) was an American singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur. Cooke is commonly referred to as the “King of Soul” for his distinctive vocals. He was a central part of the Civil Rights Movement, using his influence and popularity with the white and black population to campaign for racial equality.
