About This Event

Starring Bradd Marquis (alongside a live big band) in a new show depicting the life and music of one of America’s most iconic and talented performers, the Legendary Sam Cooke.

Cooke bridged the gap between black and white audiences and crossed generations.

This world premiere concert features the greatest hits from the Legend of Soul including You Send Me, Only Sixteen, Cupid, Chain Gang, Twistin’ the Night Away, A Change is Gonna Come, and Wonderful World to name a few.
