When Sam Cooke's "You Send Me" burst onto the pop scene in 1957, it was hailed as a phenomenal debut. In fact, Cooke was already a gospel star. His crossover into rock 'n' roll heralded the beginning of a new era. This intriguing biography presents the story of a man "who not only helped to create and define a new music form--soul--but defined his times as well" (The Washington Post). 34 photos.
