    • Sam Cooke - LIVERPOOL, UNITED KINGDOM - JUNE 17: The Lyrics to Sam Cooke's song 'A Change Is Gonna Come' are pasted onto a derelict house in Liverpool's Welsh Streets on June 17, 2014 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. A Public Inquiry begins today into plans to demolish 271 derelict houses, build around 150 new homes and refrurbish 37 terraced properties in the Toxteth area of the City.The £15 million plan has been opposed by heritage campaigners who say that the houses should be restored. The properties are nicknamed the Welsh Streets as they were built and lived in by Welsh workers in the late 19th Century and named after Welsh towns, villages and valleys. Beatles drummer Ringo Starr was born at 9 Madryn Street, one of the properties affected by the plans.

    The-Dream has just released a Sam Cooke cover album, IAMSAM which includes classics like "Bring It On Home," "You Send Me," and "Everybody Loves to Cha Cha." The album was created as a loving tribute to his mother, and he posted on instagram, "My Mother loved a lot of Artist growing up, but the one we shared the most interest in together was Sam Cooke, so Tonight I give him back to her. These songs were originally recording during the making of Beyoncé's 4 album in 2010 w my good Friend Pat Thrall. My mother passed on the 23rd day of December in 1992."

    It's just about the sweetest tribute one can hear at this time of year. Hopefully, it inspires some holiday spirit in all of us.

    This is the first time the group of covers has been released.

    Listen to the IAMSAM below.
