ENTERTAINMENT - ‘Soul King Solo, A Concert Tribute to Sam Cooke’, has gone through a number of incarnations since Michael Clarke wrote it in 2012. But two things have remained the same: the story of Sam’s life and his incredible music. After 10 years of practice on the guitar, Clarke has combined the guitar with his storytelling ability to bring the Soul King back to life for a great performance of music, song and story.

Michael Clarke has performed in professional live theatre since 1989. Other theatre credits include: Miss Saigon, The Who’s Tommy, The Lion King, Seussical the Musical, One Man Two Guvnors, Legends, Kim’s Convenience and Smokey Joe’s Café; latest Film & Television: Clifford the Big Red Dog – 2019 reboot. Michael thanks his friends and family for all their love and support.
