Example #1: The Soul Stirrers - Wonderful (Sam Cooke)
uploaded by dalkey130388 on Jul 3, 2008
This is a Gospel classic, by the most prominent Gospel group - The Soul Stirrers featuring Sam Cooke. I will be posting a similar pop soul tune called 'Loveable' with the same tune sung by a man under the pseudonym Dale Cook who sounded so much like the front man of the Soul Stirrers. Dale Cook was of course swiftly unmasked as Sam Cooke, who used the name to steer rumours away from his Gospel fans that he was going solo as a secular artist.
Anyway both songs are superb, they are both equally wonderful and loveable!

Example #4: Pilgrim Of Sorrow - Sam Cooke with The Soul Stirrers

Had the Soul Stirrers only launched the career of Sam Cooke, they would have earned their place in rock and roll history. Beyond that, however, they set the pace for gospel and pop vocal groups and played a role as forefathers in the development of rhythm and blues. As exponents of the modern gospel quartet sound back in the Forties and Fifties, they took gospel out of local churches and found a national audience for it. The group radically reshaped traditional gospel material and wrote many enduring songs of their own. The music of the Soul Stirrers represented a progression from jubilee singing to a more rhythmic style, and it served as the basis for doo-wop and R&B.
