He is the King of Rock and Soul, Mr. Solomon Burke, and he's just released his latest CD, "Nothing's Impossible." We'll talk to Solomon about recording the new record with legendary producer Willie Mitchell, who weeks after wrapping up the sessions, passed away of heart failure. Mitchell was responsible for most of Al Green's big hits and lends that same style to Burke's disc. Solomon had a great string of R&B hits in the mid-60's, but is probably best known for "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love," a song covered by the Rolling Stones and featured prominently in the Blues Brothers movie. Burke's other film credits include working alongside Dennis Quaid in "The Big Easy." He won a Grammy in 2002 for his album "Don't Give Up On Me." Click below for the Solomon Burke interview.
