2009_09_sam_cooke.jpg As you know, we are big fans of Sam Cooke so we were excited to hear that a biopic is underway. Cooke's label, ABKCO Music and Records, Inc., says it is developing a script based upon Peter Guralnick's biography of Cooke - Dream Boogie: The Triumph of Sam Cooke. Jody Klein, ABKCO's president, will be making announcements about the upcoming film in the next few months.

Unfamiliar with Sam Cooke? First - shame! Second - Adam Lambert sang Change Gonna Come on the finale of American Idol. See? Cooke's awesomeness lives.
