About the event
Come see the Hall of Heroes exhibit at the Martin-Lett Gallery Exhibit at Oxford Performing Arts Center!
THE COOKE BOOK: The Music of Sam Cooke is a celebration of Sam Cooke’s innovative career that blazed a trail for Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, Rod Stewart, Smokey Robinson, and many other giants of Soul Music. The show includes more than twenty songs from the legendary singer/songwriter that seamlessly highlight Cooke’s musical journey from Gospel golden boy, through his transition into an international Pop sensation, and his lasting legacy. A Chicago son, like Cooke himself, Darrian Ford performs these timeless and classic melodies with expanded and re-invigorated arrangements that hold stylistically true to the era.
