Saturday Night Music Pick #2

Sam Cooke performance in Miami about 50 years ago--one of the greatest live vocal performances in history of rock and soul (re-enacted at the start of the Will Smith Ali film).  Listen for the..."listen to this" and "I want you to listen to this" and  "now listen, this part is important"--borrowed by Bill Clinton for his famous 2012 Dem Convention speech backing Obama?   (Note:  Sam here was still not as great as some of his Soul Stirrers gospel recordings, such as this epic live track.)
