James Brown

The life and times of the Godfather of Soul

From I Feel Good to It’s a Man’s World, James Brown left a musical footprint that changed popular music forever. He mixed rhythm and blues, with a little “soul” twist to create a genre, which he called: funk! People often referred to the musical genius as the Godfather of Soul.

Listen to the Members' Choice Channel on AARP Internet Radio - Now Featuring classic songs from Motown.

In a definitive biography, The One, author R.J. Smith draws on interviews and letters to depict a factual account of the man behind the fame. Smith openly shares his findings regarding Brown’s unconventional upbringing in extreme poverty, to his involvement in the Civil Rights movement, all of which offers insight into the world of the most innovative musician of our time.
