James Brown

The Godfather of Soul, Soul Brother Number One and the Hardest Working Man in Show Business was one of the most influential and important musicians of the 20th Century. He invented funk music, which led to Afrobeat, juju, disco, rap and hip hop (he's the most sampled musician), and heavily influenced jazz and rock. He was also a mezmerizing dancer, a dynamic singer and a social activist.
