An Evening of Sam Cooke by Daughter Carla Cooke
Vocalist and composer Carla Cooke is the youngest daughter of the legendary Sam Cooke, whose musical life encompassed religion, romance, and history. Carla’s career mirrors that of her father, in that she crafted her sound in the church. Carla sought not to use her father’s name, but to build her own reputation. Now the younger Cooke knows that her roots are firmly entwined in her father's as she connects with them through his music.
Carla Cooke’s style is diverse in gospel, Christian, R&B, soul, and pop styles. With a strong vocal range and warm personality, Carla shows that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, as she channels the raw talent, emotion, beauty, and charisma of the Cooke family persona.
