The King of Rock and Soul

We lost Solomon Burke, the Wonder Boy Preacher.

JB was more desperate, the Wicked Pickett was more dangerous, Otis was more of a leader, Brother Al was more messianic, Sam & Dave more competitive.

But Brother Solomon, more than any of the rest, made us believe in the gospel of the music. When Solomon sang, we all still believed we could be saved.

"Turn on Your Love Light."

Thank you, Solomon. You surely turned it on for us.
