♫ Sam Cooke - A Change Is Gonna Come
🍂🍃 #thesoundofautumn 🍁🍂
Last but surely not least, another great track for my #September #Sountrack. The song was inspired mostly by an event in which #SamCooke and his entourage were turned away from a whites only motel in #Louisiana. Cooke felt compelled to write a #song that spoke to his and the struggle of those around him, and he recorded the song for its first #release on his final #album, Ain’t That Good News.
On December 11th, 1964, a year after he recorded it, Cooke was fatally shot at an L.A. motel. The official police report says that the Hotel Manager felt threatened by Cooke. Two weeks later, #AChangeIsGonnaCome was released, becoming Cooke’s farewell address and an anthem of the American Civil Rights Movement.
A rainbow of books.
