Lou Rawls

I heard he died.
Rawls began as a gospel singer and spent nearly five decades working his soulful, velvet-voiced magic on classic tunes including "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" and "Lady Love."
Any time now, Pat Robertson is going to say the lord took him because he quit singing gospel songs.

My goodness... every time I hear that voice I know exactly who it belongs to... and am always surprised its a new song I'm hearing =)
I hate when people get all sad that old people die.
I'm just glad for his contributions to non-pop music while he was here.

Thanks for the advice btw - I think I'll take it =)

Talent: One other passes us by....

Pat Robertson needs a heavy dose of humulity, reality, and meds. What a disgrace.

Lou Rawles may not have had a herd, but damn if the man could sing.

He did have a unique voice. And a very good one too. What a range.
And it's not like I was a fan, but I did like to listen to him sing.


Sassy,
I hope it works out for you. It has to be awkward.
