Wilt Chamberlain was a man of many talents and surprisingly singing was one of them

Wilt Chamberlain

Wilt Chamberlain was arguably the greatest player in NBA history, but apart from his talent for basketball, he was a man of many other skills. In college, he would participate in track and field, volleyball, acting, and of course, basketball. Little do you maybe know, but Wilt was also a great singer, and he recorded two songs back in 1960 when he was a rookie in the NBA.

It's a common thing to see NBA players in a recording studio. However, most of them rap; some are even good at rapping, but not a lot of them sing well. Wilt was the complete opposite, and you can hear he has a good singing voice. The only two songs he ever published "That's easy to say" and "By the River" are a genre that was very popular back in the day.
