“A General In The Army
Of The Lord!”
“He Is In A Better Place And He Made This World A Better Place!”
Solomon Burke was Robert Jr & Sugar Mae's Bishop Of Love. We
had so much more to do with him! But God needed him more than we did.
He is soldiering on with Koko and the lord! God Bless You King Solomon,
we were so blessed to know you.

Early this morning, Sunday, October 10, 2010, the
legendary King of Rock & Soul, Solomon Burke, our father, passed
away due to natural causes.
Solomon had just arrived at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, the Netherlands
for a sold out show at Paradiso with Dutch band, De Dijk. He was on
his way to spread his message of love as he loved to do.
This is a time of great sorrow for our entire family.
We truly appreciate all of the support and well wishes from his friends
and fans. Although our hearts and lives will never be the same, his
love, life and music will continue to live within us forever. As our
family grieves during this time of mourning, thank you for respecting
