Nothing's Impossible

Album: Nothing's Impossible (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of an album by Solomon Burke, which was released just after the southern soul legend turned 70.
  • In 2009, Burke joined Willie Mitchell at Mitchell's Royal Studio in Memphis to work together on a new recording. It was the first time Burke and Mitchell, who is best known for mentoring R&B legend Al Green, had worked together in their careers. It turned out to be Willie Mitchell's last recording project as the producer died in January 2010. Burke told Billboard magazine that his original plan was just to drop in on Mitchell. "Willie was always going to come to Los Angeles, and I was always going to come to Memphis," he recalled. "Then I decided to surprise him while I was performing at a casino in Mississippi."
    Burke's planned 30-minute visit to Mitchell's studio turned into a four-hour session that yielded several songs. "We just sang and wrote songs together," Burke said. "Spiritually minded songs about love, hope and holding on. To lose Willie and know this was the last project he did... his sound and spirit lives in this CD."
