Elvis takes the title as the ‘King of Rock and Roll;’ Michael Jackson is the King (or Prince) of Pop; and James Brown is the Godfather of Soul, but this morning we realized…is there an artist who’s considered the ‘King of Soul?’
While it’s widely known that Aretha Franklin is the ‘Queen Of Soul,’ who is her King? There are plenty of worthy artists who can easily claim the title as King, so we want to know who you think it is!
The title ‘King Of Soul’ is most commonly associated with Solomon Burke, who is also dubbed as ‘Bishop of Soul,’ ‘King Solomon’ or ‘King of Rock and Roll Soul,’ but is he considered the main ‘King of Soul’?
Listen to the clip from the morning show this morning below and tell us who you think is the real King of Soul!
