Dion has released “Song For Sam Cooke” with Paul Simon which is the sixth single from his upcoming album, Blues With Friends.

Then in 2019 I saw the movie Green Book and after that I couldn’t shake the song.  My friend Paul Simon wanted to record it what he was hearing on the tune; it’s a story we both share. Thank you Paul. Rest in peace, Sam.”
