Known For Vocals:
As a soul singer and voice actor. Initially having success as a composer and performer of soul music in the 1960s and 70s, Hayes achieved great mainstream attention with his theme for the 1971 film "Shaft", which he wrote and recorded. He then became a cult star in the 1990s, providing the voice of 'Chef', an african-american, sexually active, soul-singing canteen worker on the Comedy Central cartoon-comedy series, "South Park". Chef would often burst into song at inappropriate times, singing explicit parodies of soul and funk songs. A formidable bass-baritone, Hayes projected very dark sounding low notes with great ease, and spoke in a very low register a lot of the time. That said, he had impressive flexibility in his upper reaches too, belting out notes around F♯4 quite easily even into his fifties and sixties. Passing away from a stroke aged 65, Hayes leaves an interesting legacy of music and television, and will be remembered as a talented musician with a good sense of humour.
