Al Green

Born in Forrest City, Arkansas, to sharecroppers, Albert Green made a name for himself in the 1970s as one of the greatest voices in soul music. His sophomore LP, Al Green Gets Next to You, featured his classics “Tired of Being Alone,” “Let’s Stay Together” and “I’m Still in Love With You.” Overall, Green has sold more than 20 million records and in 1995 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He became an ordained minister in 1976 and recorded a series of gospel records, which earned him eight soul gospel performance Grammys. In 2003, Green released his first secular album in two decades, I Can’t Stop. In 2009, he was honored with the BET Lifetime Achievement Award.
