"One of the most popular and influential gospel groups of the 20th century, the Soul Stirrers were pioneers in the development of the quartet style of gospel and, without intending it, in the creation of soul music, doo wop, and motown, some of the secular music that owed much to gospel." - wikipedia

Had The Soul Stirrers only launched Sam Cooke's career, they would have earned their spot in rock and roll history, but they did much more then that.
