Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Soul and jazz singer Lou Rawls, who sold over 40 million albums over his fantastic career, also dabbled in screen work throughout the 1960s and later in his life, appearing frequently on "Baywatch Nights" and voicing such animated series as Nickelodeon's "Hey Arnold!." Rawls sang in local choirs in his youth. After a harsh stint in the Army, he established a musical career, and by the early 1960s he was opening for The Beatles, and winning Grammys for his hot-selling records. During this period, he began getting into acting, mostly in one-off roles, on shows like the star-studded Western "The Big Valley." Rawls stepped away from the screen as he found his greatest musical success in the 1970s, with the Platinum-selling record "All Things in Time" and the wildly popular single "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine." By the time the 1990s rolled in, Rawls's fame led to small-screen roles and winking cameos, and in 1995 he played the part of Lou Raymond on the beach series spin-off "Baywatch Nights." He was later asked to join the cast of the kids' animated hit "Hey Arnold! ."
