Lou Rawls, Dies At 72....

Another sad day indeed, soul singer extraordanaire Lou Rawls has died of lung cancer, he was 72 years old. He passed away in Los Angeles, Ca. All I can say is wow. Sometimes you forget that these "celebrities", even your favorite ones are still human and so it is still quite surprising when you hear that they've died. It also reminds me of my own mortality. I remember my parents listening to him, especially my mom, it seemed like every weekend.

I'll always remember his yearly telethons and of course the United Negro College Fund of which he is quite well known for.

I didn't know him personally so I hope he found the Lord prior to his passing.
