Multi-platinum Australian soul and R&B artist Gary Pinto brings his love and respect of Sam Cooke, to life in his new live show Sam Cooke – The Music.

Be taken on a journey celebrating the life of a man who paved the way for many and who’s legacy has earned him the title of The Godfather of Soul to this day. Be mesmerised by Gary’s soaring vocals in the hit “A Change Is Going to Come” and “Unchained Melody” to the soulful “Another Saturday Night” and the melodic love song “You Send Me”.

“One of my biggest inspirations, the great Sam Cooke is an extraordinary blessing and something that I treat with reverence and respect while instilling a new vision into these classic songs” commented Gary.

Pinto, a founding member of 90’s Australian R&B pioneers CDB, has gone on to forge a successful solo career, working with a vast array of local and international artists including Jimmy Barnes, Guy Sebastian, Kylie Minogue and Ronan Keating.

Sam Cooke – The Music is a show not to be missed.
