Robert Goulet

His face was more famous than his voice, but Robert Goulet recorded a string of popular albums for Columbia during the 1960s, striking the pop charts with several hits and earning a 1962 Grammy Award. Born in 1933 in Lawrence, MA, Goulet was raised in Edmonton, Alberta, where he first studied acting and singing as a teenager. He appeared on Canadian television in the early '50s, but moved to New York and by the end of the decade was fit into a prime Broadway role: Sir Lancelot, in Lerner & Loewe's Camelot (with Julie Andrews and Richard Burton). A starring role in several films proved less than successful, however.

He began singing in the early '60s as well, and after an appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, Goulet signed to Columbia in 1962. His single "What Kind of Fool Am I?" became a modest hit later that year, and early in 1963 he won a Grammy for Best New Artist. Like many vocal artists of the day, however, Goulet became a bankable LP seller rather than a chart success, and though he made a surprise Top 20 showing of "My Love, Forgive Me (Amore, Scusami)" in 1964, it was his last hit. The album My Love Forgive Me reached number five and became a gold seller, and Goulet continued recording until 1970, when he moved into concert and television work.

In 1993, Goulet mounted a production of Camelot, this time trading roles to play the more aged King Arthur. That same year he appeared, in animated form, on an episode of The Simpsons. In 1996 he starred in the film Mr. Wrong and three years later he was the singing voice of Wheezy the Penguin in the animated feature Toy Story 2. The year 2000 found him in a revival of South Pacific and in 2005 he was back on Broadway starring in La Cage aux Folles. In 2006 he was given a spot on Canada's Walk of Fame. A year later he was featured in a bizarre and hilarious commercial for the Emerald Nut Company that aired during Super Bowl XLI. He died in late 2007 while awaiting a lung transplant for relief from a rare form of pulmonary fibrosis. ~ John Bush, Rovi

NO CHRISTMAS MUSIC PLEASE

I had the chance to see him twice in concert. Once around 1980 in Carousel when he stood right next to me in the aisle and sang. I was ecstatic! Again I saw him in Camelot - while playing King Arthur when his son was playing Lancelot. I was lucky enough to have front row seats for this performance. I can still see him in both productions when I hear those songs. His voice was magical! It was a very sad day when we lost him. Love you Mr. Goulet!

His magical voice remains one of my very favorites - every time I hear him sing, I can see him in my mind's eye. There has been no-one so far to replace him, in my opinion

I love his music, I was lucky to meet him and he was a wonderful person, I wish he were still here. But his music will live in my heart always. I never tire of listening to him sing.
Indeed a beautiful voice. His face was just as recognizable because he was a handsome man, just like his voice. Sorry he is gone.
What a privlidge it has been to have been here when he was so popular. Nice to think that his voice and beautiful music will continue on long after I have departed. God Bless you Robert!

Another one of the better singers that has left us with just memories of his very wonderful voice. A lot of us miss him.
This was a great voice that could have gone classical. I understand he studied at Toronto Conservatory . I would have loved to have heard him sing more of the classical art songs; "Songs of Travel" by Vaughn Williams for example.

PAT Q SAYS..OH SO ROMANTIC..BR I N G S BACK MEMORIES OF THE FIFTIES..WHE N MUSIC WAS BEAUTIFUL
The highlight for me was seeing Robert Goulet in concert in Las Vegas An absolutely wonderful evening- I never stopped smiling.
What an outstanding voice.
I am so glad to hear that other's feel the same as I do about the comment "better known for his face, than voice". I remember vividly the week that he and his then wife, Carol Lawrence, were on the Mike Douglas Show. His wonderful quick sense of humor and he and Carol were such genuine talents that it was magical to watch them.
Better known for his face than voice??? How absurd. Clearly the writer has never listened to him sing with his distinctive rich baritone voice. Perhaps the writer would also say the same about Frank Sinatra. His voice and singing talent is why I am listening to him now.
We should always treasure these artists...St e v e Lawrence especially. Robert was indeed fun to listen to....great expressions.

Although I love everything Goulet, This is Sammy Davis' sone - no one can sing it like him
A rich and memorable voice. Many warm memories when I hear his rendition of so many romantic songs. He is remembered by this youngster of 79yrs of age.
Face better known than voice? What a boob - this guy had the best voice in the industry. Unfortunate that the rock only jerks are picked to do bios.

Face better known than his voice? Gotta get some writers with a little more years on them. Goulet's clear, power baritone and perfect diction made him one of the preeminent singers of his time. That and his easy personality and ability to laugh at his "pretty boy" image made him a compelling personality who absolutely owned the stage whenever the lights came up. Oh, one more thing: Prior to mounting "South Pacific," and about the time he was discovered to have prostate cancer, he mounted and tou

How I love the rich Baritone of Goulet. His emotional phrasing has been so underrated. What a classy gent! How much I miss him. Listen and mist up and remember a more romantic time.
one of the best unacknowledg e d voices of the twentieth century
A unique voice a special singer from my home town, Lawrence Mass.and a family friend. We miss you deeply...... . . . . R u s s Desrosiers
Whenever I hear his voice I must stop what I'm doing and just
enjoy his beautiful gifted voice. I loved him as so many others
have. He is truly missed. Thank you for keeping his voice alive.

A life cut short; but his strong and melodic voice will be with us for years to come
Artist with the greatest, full-bodied, clear baritone voice.
In addition to a marvelous voice, he has consummate musicianship and he sings on pitch, something many pop singers seem unable to do. What a gift to the music world for so many years. Always a joy to hear.

He was very popular in the Detroit area during the 60's, when I first heard him and fell in love with his voice. One of the DJs heavily promoted his records and often had him "in person" on the radio. He jokingly nick-named him "Bobby Gullet" - to this day, I still think very fondly of him and love to hear his voice.
glennconn2
I saw him in person in Le Miiserables when he was at least 67 and he sang as strong and beautiful as ever.
No mistaking his marvelous voice. One of the greatest.
Strong voice with little warmth.
