Neil Diamond Is Undeniably The Greatest Showman Of All Time

Soolaimón” is one of Neil’s most unforgettable tracks. It has stood the test of time and still continues to be among his greatest hits. It was a staple in most of his concerts or any live performance. In fact, he would often sing it for the opening.

An early venture into World Music, this was part of a suite of songs known as “The African Trilogy.” Diamond studied African culture at the Kenyon Mission, the United Nations and the African Studies department at UCLA. “Soolaimon” can mean “hello,” “welcome,” “good-bye” and “peace be with you.”

He has sold over 128 million records worldwide and he continues to be one of the most influential musicians the world has ever known.

Among his many accolades, the Grammy Award winner and 12-time nominee is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and a recipient of the Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award, one of the highest honors bestowed upon songwriters. He was the MusiCares Person of the Year in 2009.
