Al Green

Speaking of love songs, nobody did them as well as Al Green back in the ’70s. With soul hits like “I’m Still In Love With You,” “Love & Happiness” and “Let’s Stay Together,” to name just a few, it’s no reason Rolling Stone said of him in their list of the 100 Greatest Artists, “People are born to do certain things, and Al was born to make us smile.” And I’d add “swoon.” Green kept making music but turned to gospel, and became the ordained pastor of the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Memphis, where he still preaches the good word to this day. For more on the interesting back story to his full career, read Take Me to the River, released in 2000.
