Al Green is one of the great voices of soul and rhythm and blues music. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, Green has a body of hits that guarantees his place in music history.
A personal tragedy in 1974 caused Green to begin to reevaluate his life. Eventually he went into the ministry and to this day continues to pastor a church in Memphis, Tennessee.
When I first heard "Everything Is Gonna be Alright" in 1987 I was blown away and Al Green's Soul Survivor album became one of my favorites.
