A Musical Note: Ben E. King – I Who Have Nothing

I think there might be two kinds of “soul music“.  And I think “I Who Have Nothing” by Ben E. King is one if the second kind.

This short song is filled with emotion and power.  The song was released in 1963.  It reached 29 on the charts.

This is a song to listen to.  A song to emphasize with, a song to enjoy and to endure… and if that makes no sense, listen again.

Ladies and gentlemen, Ben E. King sings “I Who Have Nothing”:
