Solomon Burke helped to shape the sound of rhythm and blues as one of the founding fathers of soul music. He had a litany of hit singles in the 1960s for Atlantic Records including "Cry to Me," "If You Need Me," "Down in the Valley," and "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love," to name a few. Atlantic Records' co-founder Jerry Wexler has referred to Burke as "the greatest male soul singer of all time" and it was reported that he signed a "handshake"” deal with the label within ten minutes of originally entering Wexler's office. His signing helped to reinvigorate the label, as stars Bobby Darin and Ray Charles had just left.

Drawing inspiration from gospel, jazz, country and blues—Burke developed his own unique style and was often called "The King of Rock 'n' Soul" earning him a wide bi-racial audience. Due to his spiritual background he refused to be classified as an R&B singer because of its labeled stigma by the church. During his almost six decades of performing, he released 38 studio albums—selling at total 17 million—and had 35 charting singles including 26 that made the Billboard R&B charts.

In 2001, he was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame as a performer and has been ranked by Rolling Stone on their list of "100 Greatest Singers of All Time." Burke is one of the most important male vocalists in music history and has influenced legendary rockers such as the Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello, Van Morrison, the Animals and Tom Petty.
