Lou Rawls was one of the music world's most versatile vocalists, covering gospel, R&B, soul, jazz, blues and pop. A three-time Grammy Award winner, his deep, smooth, soulful style exemplified his classy elegance and made him one of the most recognizable voices anywhere. And his philanthropic efforts on behalf of many charitable causes further displayed his passion and commitment to helping others through music. We have lost a true musical pioneer, but his legacy will continue to inspire us all.
