Lou Rawls was an American soul, jazz, and blues singer known for his smooth vocal style. Frank Sinatra once said that Rawls had "the classiest singing and silkiest chops in the singing game". He released 75 albums, sold more than 40 million records and appeared as an actor in both movies and TV. He earned 13 Grammy Nominations (3 Grammy awards), 1 Platinum Album, 5 Gold Albums and a Gold Single. He first gained prominence with "Love Is a Hurtin' Thing" which reached #1 on the 1966 Billboard R&B chart. His 1976 "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine" reached #1 on both the R&B and Easy Listening charts. "Lady Love", released in 1978, peaked at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #21 on the R&B charts. "Lady Love" is still an airplay staple today on adult standards and smooth jazz radio stations. In 1980 he began the "Lou Rawls Parade of Stars Telethon" which benefits the United Negro College Fund. Now known as "An Evening of Stars" the event has raised over $200 million in 27 shows for the fund through 2006. In 2004 Rawls was honored by the United Negro College Fund for his more than 25 years of charity work. In 1982 Rawls received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This selection is from his 1990 album "It's Supposed to Be Fun" released both on vinyl and as a CD.
