  1. hi from scotland. can you please tell me the dates for the sam cooke tribute weekend in memphis april 2008? im a huge fan and would love to come. thanks.

  2. I’m Erik Greene, the nephew of Sam Cooke and the author of “Our Uncle Sam: The Sam Cooke Story From His Family’s Perspective.” While still in the writing process, I asked a friend, a talented artist in his own right, to paint a portrait of my uncle for my back cover. His response was “I could do it, but I know someone who could do it better” and he introduced me to Maya. Started while she was in Spain and finished here in the U.S., she used sixteen different angles of Sam to paint her untitled portrait and the result exceeded my every expection. Maya Escobar is a truly amazing talent.

  3. X Dell –

    I actually don’t know however there are a number of videos of him on youtube. Try contacting Erik Greene at: scooke@ourunclesam.com and he might be able to point you in the right direction.

    good luck!

    ps Erik is Sam’s nephew ( I am just a fan 🙂 and the painter of his portrait)
