TCC Playlist: Jesus Gave Me Water by Sam Cooke

Posted in TCC Playlist | Under , , |


Sam Cooke was born to sing. The son of a Baptist minister, and one of eight children, he got his start singing in church.  He later sang with the gospel group the Soul Stirrers, and eventually crossed over to popular music.  Arguably the most important soul singer in history, even as a pop star, Cooke continued to be a voice for peace and justice with songs about the Civil Rights movement like “A Change is Gonna Come.” One of our favorites is “Jesus Gave Me Water”.
