Lou Rawls (1933-2006)...

A bitch was saddened to hear of the death of Lou Rawls.

This bitch was a fan…not one to crave his music but certainly one to enjoy it when it.

My ass most associates Lou Rawls with the United Negro College Fund, which he supported through his Parade of Stars Telethon. To my knowledge, Lou Rawls didn’t go to college. Yet he spent a lot of energy and time trying to make college a possibility for multitudes of students.

If an individual is able to do some good…to help a fellow human being…to inspire someone to reach beyond their perceived limits and to dream, learn and accomplish…then that individual has lived a blessed life and left a legacy.

May we all find as much inspiration in Lou Rawls’ charitable legacy as we do in his musical one.

Here Here on the charity...thanks for keeping it at the forefront. My ex husband and I used to listen to Lou. I especially liked that song with the lyrics "orange juice for one." Yeah, we were cheeseballs.

I read the poor man had cancer of the lungs and brain. The Lord must of looked and said to him, "C'mon, Lou. You'll be better here at home".

Lou Rawls was a great man, he worked so hard to help others. Not many other celebrities like him.

Just like I was watching The Wiz, days before Richard Pryor passed away, I was just listening to "Let Me Be Good to You" on satellite radio, about a week ago. Sad how all that works. You get a blast from the past, and then they're gone. R.I.P. Lou.
