Lou Rawls

For some reason, the deaths of popular singers seem to affect me more than those of actors or athletes. Maybe because they're more constantly with us, always in the background, through important events in our lives and just average days. Anyway, that's a long intro into saying I was sorry to hear of the death of Lou Rawls. I don't know any man who doesn't wish he could sing like Lou could. Even when he was barely in a song, such as singing the response "yeah" in Sam Cooke's "Bring in on Home to Me," the song, and those of us listening, ended up so much richer.
