Starring Allan P. Cason
Allan Cason, long-time OC based emcee, musician, writer, and rock impresario, presents his one man cabaret. In the words of Mr. Joel-Steven, "the more I thought about the Sam Cooke saga, the more I knew that his story needed to be told in FULL. There's a lot more than what we just saw in the film One Night In Miami. So I did my research - serious research into the man who should’ve been Berry Gordy, Elvis Presley, and MLK wrapped into one. An undeniable ever lasting legacy cut short in his prime and buried under Los Angeles racial tensions and police corruption. A story is important today as it was the day Sam Cooke died. In our show, Sam Cooke himself takes you on a journey of his career, chronologically going through his hit songs and giving his perspective in a way that only Mr. Soul could. His service in church, the rise to fame, the stifling of his genius, the awakening of his social conscience, the struggle, the music, the man."
