The industry lost another remarkable talent. R.I.P. Lou!

LOS ANGELES — Lou Rawls, the velvet-voiced singer and longtime community activist who started as a choir boy and went on to record such classic tunes as “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine,” died Friday of cancer. He was 72.

Rawls died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was hospitalized last month for treatment of lung and brain cancer, said his publicist, Paul Shefrin. His wife, Nina, was at his bedside when he died.

"velvet-voiced singer", indeed!

This makes me so sad. He was one of my dad's favorites.
