Al Green celebrated his 64th birthday Tuesday; so, I thought it would was befitting to honor him this Flashback Friday. Not to mention he is one of the biggest names in soul and gospel of all time.

In 2005, Rolling Stone named him #65 in their list of the ‘100 Greatest Artists of All Time’. The nomination, written by Justin Timberlake, stated that “people are born to do certain things, and Al was born to make us smile.” The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Green in 1995, referring to him as “one of the most gifted purveyors of soul music.” Green has sold more than 20 million records.
