Larry Hovis

Larry Hovis, an American singer and actor, is best known for his role as Sergeant Carter in the television sitcom Hogan’s Heroes. He was born in February 1936 in Wapato, Washington, and he did leave behind a legendary oeuvre as an inspiration for the current generation. Houston was the perfect setting for the artist’s growth, where Hovis had moved to with his parents, at a very young age. Talent Scouts was the first show he appeared on as a youth who was passionate about singing. Hovis had to leave the practice of singing for a few years when attending the University of Houston. Hovis had then switched back into singing in the 1950s; he sang with several groups such as the Mascots in nightclubs.

 One album of his released with Capitol Records, which contained songs which he had written and composed. The biggest hit of the album was “We Could Have Lots of Fun,” which made him quite popular back in those days, spurring several artists to sign up for collaborations with him. Of all the performances he has been a part of, it was the 1959 Carlton album, Sweet Singing Swing, of the Bill Gannon Trio that became a huge success. Certain local theatre productions hired him for various roles in the late 1950s, after which he became a successful actor. Later, he moved to New York City and appeared in Broadway revue From A to Z, which was the right platform for him to showcase his comedy and singing talents.

 He then had a great time in the Television industry with his most memorable show, Hogan’s Heroes. Till the end of 1970s, he appeared in several TV shows to rise into considerable fame. Hovis, in the 1980s, toured as Melvin P. Thorpe in the musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. He was then part of several musical shows, albums, and TV shows, both as a performer and producer, after which, he died in 2003 at the age of 67. As we near the 17th anniversary of his passing away, looking back on his best musical works can potentially create a new set of fans for his sweet voice. Here is a list of his best songs that could possibly turn out into an earworm.
