Terrence Trent Darby Sananda Maitreya Wonderful World

I still say that TTD sounds more Otis Redding than Sam Cooke but, here is Terrence Trent Darby / Sananda Maitreya singing Sam Cooke's Wonderful World

Sananda Maitreya, born March 15, 1962 as Terence Trent Howard in Manhattan, New York, known to childhood friends as Terry Darby, and formerly known as Terence Trent D'Arby, is an American singer-songwriter currently living in Milan, Italy. He is recognizable through his trademark voice resembling that of Sam Cooke, and the fact that, like such artists as Stevie Wonder, Todd Rundgren and Prince before him, he produces his own albums and plays most of the instruments ... His debut solo album, Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D'Arby, released in 1987, is his best-known and, in commercial terms, most successful work. The album, which produced such hits as "If You Let Me Stay," "Wishing Well," "Dance Little Sister," and "Sign Your Name," sold over a million copies in the first three days of its release, and its sales currently total over 12 million. The album also earned D'Arby a Grammy Award in March 1988 in the category Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male. In that same year, he earned a Soul Train Award nomination for Best New Artist. wikipedia Terence Trent Darby wikipedia
