Entertainment: Grammy winner has cancer Black Habits Articles Grammy-winning singer Lou Rawls has been diagnosed with cancer and was being treated at a Los Angeles hospital, his spokesman said last week Friday.

“He was diagnosed with cancer a while back and he’s undergone various treatments,” Paul Shefrin said, adding that the illness became public in an Arizona court where the 70- year-old crooner was seeking an annulment of his marriage.

Shefrin declined to provide further details or confirm a report in the Arizona Republic that Rawls was diagnosed with lung cancer a year ago.

“Don’t count me out, brother,” Rawls told the paper from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. “There’s been many people who have been diagnosed with this kind of thing and they’re still jumpin’ and pumpin’.”

Rawls said in the interview that he had smoked regularly as a young man but quit 35 years ago.

Rawls was born in Chicago, grew up performing in the church choir and got his start in show business as a Gospel singer before turning to R&B, soul and pop.

He has won three Grammy awards and sold more than 40 million albums. REUTERS
