1. Portrait of Al Green

Portrait of Al Green

Al Green started his long career in the late 1960s with soul and R&B hits and his recordings were a huge success, however, in the mid-1970s he became convinced that an accident with a girlfriend was a sign from God that he should join the ministry, which he subsequently did. After that, Green focused on recording Gospel music, and since then, has recorded only a few more soul or R&B songs here and there, as well as a UK-only soul album in 1992. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.
