The first 20-plus years of Sam Moore’s sensational career began by lending his unmistakable lead vocals to soul duo Sam & Dave. The 1967 smash hit “Soul Man,” catapulted the duo’s career up the Pop and R&B Charts, selling more than 10 million records worldwide and ultimately an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Moore also scored critical acclaim and numerous awards as a solo artist for more than 35 years, performing at some of the world’s most iconic and notable venues, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Hollywood Bowl, The Ryman Auditorium, The Grand Ole Opry, Royal Albert Hall, Nippon Budokan, The John F. Kennedy Center, The White House, Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument. Moore has recently joined Florida International University (FIU) as an Artist in Residence for their Center of Humanities to build a program around the artist histories that shaped our culture through music.
When you gather some of music’s greatest hitmakers and put them on a stage to raise money for veterans, along with “Southern Cooking Queen” Paula Deen, you are bound to have something special. That is exactly what happened when Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Sam Moore was joined by T. Graham Brown, Lee Brice, Michael Ray, Janie Fricke, Darryl Worley, and Tim Rushlow to perform “Soul Man”. That performance along with those from Crystal Gayle (Don’t I Make My Brown Eyes Blue), Debby Boone (You Light Up My Life), John Conlee (They Also Serve), Darryl Worley (Have You Forgotten), The Oak Ridge Boys (Elvira), The Gatlin Brothers (All The Gold In California), Home Free (America, My Country Tis Of Thee), The Frontmen (medley of hits), and co-host Lee Greenwood (God Bless The USA) helped bring such awareness to the Helping A Hero organization that the special presentation was honored with three (3) national Telly Awards for “Best Use of Influencer” in a non-profit, “Charitable Branded Content”, and “Not-for-Profit Live Stream”.
