    Does anyone here love this great artist like I do??? He's the man who has influenced every African American singer who came after him, whether in R&B or Gospel... His beautiful melisma, and smooth sound influenced male and female singers across all genres...

    He was murdered in a sleazy hotel in December 1964, and his death turned Black America upside down... He was the Michael Jordan of his day, a brother every brother wanted to be like... Handsome and smooth with the women, and loved by all for his immense talent as a singer, and as a businessmen... Young people, this man was also very conscious of his Blackness, and that set him apart from his contemporaries... He wanted to control his assets, and did so by creating his own label... One of the very first brothers to do so... Rest in Peace Satin Sam, I will never forget you!
