Singer Lou Rawls Dies at 72
LOS ANGELES - Grammy Award-winning singer Lou Rawls has died of lung cancer in Los Angeles. He was 72.

The velvet-voiced singer started as a church choir boy and went on to sell more than 40 million albums. He won three Grammy Awards in a career that spanned nearly five decades and a range of genres.

Rawls died this morning at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He was hospitalized last month.

:( This is so sad, because my high school friends (one now a soror) and I had a running joke about Low Rawls all though high school. That was my homey in my head. R.I.P. Low Rawls.:(

I knew there was a reason this week was going so crappy.

Right now, I have "You'll Never Find" running through my mind. I hope the jazz station here in SoCal plays his music, he did a great album with Les McCann back in the early 1960s.

RIP, Lou.
