For years multi-gold and platinum award selling recording artist Sam Moore was best known for lending his unmistakable lead vocals to the historic soul duo Sam & Dave that hailed from Miami, Florida but found their fame tied to the Memphis based Stax Records. The rapid fire call and response fashioned by Sam from his gospel roots became the trademark style of the duo and can be heard in the vocals of hits including “Hold On I’m Comin’”, “I Thank You”, “When Something Is Wrong With My Baby” and of course the song legends are made of “Soul Man”.
On 4 April 2014, the unfortunate anniversary of the loss by assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, a song Sam recorded recently in Memphis, “They Killed A King” is being released to honor Dr. King’s memory. During the time of Dr. King, Sam and duo mate Dave often traveled the south as the opening act for the Civil Rights leader at rallies and speeches.
