One of his big hits
Songwriter, producer and musician Allen Toussaint was born January 14, 1938 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Toussaint made his mark on the music industry with his New Orleans sound: a mix of R&B traditions with soul, funk, rock and pop.
He was a writer, producer and arranger for Aaron Neville, Paul McCartney, Joe Cocker, Elvis Costello
and Eric Clapton, to name a few.
Toussaint's original songs have been covered by The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Pointer Sisters, Ringo Starr, and many more.
He was an activist as well as a musician, and co-founded the charity New Orleans Artists Against Hunger and Homelessness.
In recent years Toussaint started performing himself: He played at the White House four times, launched his own record label, and toured internationally as a musician and as a teller of the story of New Orleans.
