Waiting For A Change: Sabre Covers Cooke

Maverick Sabre Covers ‘A Change Is Gonna Come’

The song 'A Change Is Gonna Come' was first released by Sam Cooke in 1964, and since has been covered by major-name artists in their careers. The song itself carries a timeless message of longing for change, and was originally inspired by events in Cooke's life that concerned racial divide in the United States. Although originally written to this perspective, the song has transcended to be an ode to change in the inequitable world we live in. A wide variety of covers by artists from Bobby Womack to George Benson to today's up and coming Maverick Sabre provide testament to this. Maverick Sabre, hailing from the United Kingdom, is a recent name in today's music world, and his cover goes to show how important and applicable Cooke's words are even today.
