We’re gonna miss his singing. Grammy-winning vocalist Lou Rawls died this morning in a Los Angeles hospital, where he was battling lung and brain cancer. He was 72. Rawls’ career spanned almost 50 years, including early work in pal Sam Cooke’s gospel act, the Highway QCs, and was marked by philanthropic work on behalf of the United Negro College Fund, most notably founding the Lou Rawls Parade of Stars Telethon. If it’s been a while since you heard Rawls’ biggest hit, 1976’s ”You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine,” take a listen over at AOL Music, and enjoy his wistful, four-octave voice paired with one of the best relationship-sendoff tracks of all time. Good stuff indeed.
