Carla Cooke ~ The Ultimate Sam Cooke Experience Tribute

Sunday, Sep. 01 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)

R & BRock/Pop

The Legendary Sam Cooke was an American singer, songwriter, civil-rights activist and entrepreneur. Influential as both a singer and composer, he is commonly known as the “King of Soul.” Carla Cooke, Sam’s youngest daughter, mirrors the image of her father in her daily life through her performances. Carla crafted her sound in the church similar to her dad’s and never sought to use her father's name to build her own reputation. Cooke reconnects her audience with her father’s roots through his music.

Carla is currently on tour with the "Ultimate Sam Cooke Experience Tribute" with her band Agape Nation, where she performs unforgettable hit songs of her father’s and shares intimate stories about his life and music. Carla has been on tour with "The Daughters of Rhythm and Blues." Don't miss this opportunity to journey with Carla!
