He Died Today...

Isn't it funny how you can be effected by someone you've never really met...but have listened to...a good deal of your life. Events in your life may be marked by his music...a phrase or a note brings back memories...some sad...some pleasant.

Lou Rawls...died today. He was being treated for lung and brain cancer.

His career spanned nearly 50 years. His velvet voice could wrap itself around different genres...including gospel...jazz...blues...soul...pop. Other entertainers...like Frank Sinatra...admired him...and sang his praises. He sold more than 40 million records in his time...and won 3 grammy awards.

Mr. Rawls...you will be remembered


Kiss

KMS, that velvet voice of his was so recognizable, and always grabbed my attention, lifted my spirits and brought a smile to my face!

"You'll Never Find
...............another love like mine"

Just too COOL!!!!

yes...he was the essence of cool. The world has lost a great talent.
"You'll Never Find"...was a big hit for him.

I'm listening to some of his music...and letting those sounds bring back some of those memories. And I'm smiling.

Kiss

I am thinking of all the people he moved with his music...and in such positive ways....his was a real gift. Just the mention of his name brings back his music.
