The trick is to give without looking to receive - to give of yourself to your family, your friends, your community, and the world community with love. The King of Rock and Soul Solomon Burke
, Archbishop of the House of God For All People
and member of the Hall of Fame died on a plane (2)
after arriving in Amsterdam.
Solomon's most beloved song was arguably Everybody needs somebody to love
, which was covered by the Rolling Stones
, Wilson Pickett
and, of course, The Blues Brothers
. He had another brush with the filming industry when his song Cry to me was used in the film Dirty Dancing.
Solomon received a Grammy for 2002's Don't give up on me, which included compositions by the likes of Van Morrison, Tom Waits, Brian Wilson, Elvis Costello and Bob Dylan. Solomon collaborated recently in the studio with Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton for his 2006 album Nashville.
Burke leaves behind 21 children (14 daughters and 7 sons), 90 grandchildren and a wealth of singles with Atlantic records, like Got to get you off my mind
and Just out of reach (of my two open arms)
