AND, here's what I found....
Rawls was a awesome vocalist, FRANK SINATRA said [ a quote from WIKIPEDIA, "] that Rawls had "the classiest singing and silkiest chops in the singing game". O.K., now, that's from Sinatra who knows what he's talking about.
Rawls won three  GRAMMYS, for his voice. He was a 'voice actor'...so, I'd guess that means he did...??? I'll check, it must be something very cool. .he wrote and produced songs too. Well, Rawls was an actor and had a cool voice...could that be a 'voice actor'? Maybe.
When he was a young man, Rawls was friends with SAM COOKE and CURTIS MAYFIELD in Chicago.
In 1958 he was pronounced dead from a car crash, stayed in a coma for three days, then recovered...it took over a year....WOW...amazing.
He did some vocal/harmonies for his buddy Sam Cooke, on Cooke's recordings of "Bring It On Home to Me" and "That's Where It's At," In '62, he made a jazz album with LES McCANN and the recording of 'Tabacco Road' below, he was put into the National 'lime light' and became very well known in our country.
