  • Luther Vandross


    Luther R Vandross

    Undoubtedly one of the greatest male vocalists to have graced the music scene. He was the ultimate balladeer, and one of a kind.

    I love him to bits, and his music lives on in so many ways. He is definetly missed, and his voice and unique contribution to soul is sourly missed.

    Some of my favorite Luther records are:
    Here and Now
    The ultimate wedding song, and such a timeless classic.

    Superstar
    No words. His vocal delivery is phenominal.

    Never too Much
    My jam!

    Power of Love
    This is my anthem, and it has brought me through so many a dark time in my life. I personally believe he is talking about a higher love, a greater power, way more powerful than the love of a relationship.

    What are your thoughts on him, and what songs really define who Luther was?
    Here for Alicia Keys only.

    This song always makes me cry.
    What a gracious way to say farewell.

      That's probably his best song! It deserved the Song of the Year award.

        I love that song too. One of his best.
        I also love Celine Dion's version.

                Damnnnn. He died in 2004 I think. Check out his All Star Tribute album. Big artists covered his songs. Usher. Beyoncé. Alicia Keys. Celine. Mary J. Awesome album.
                I only discovered him with his last studio album DWMF. I then got his back catalogue. Amazing music.

                  LOVE Luther.

                  He ascended (and even descended) the vocal scale like nobody else - he was a formidable vocalist.

                  I always thought though that his material was less than his talent, aside from his big hits.

                              I know they say its better late than never but I only discovered Luther when Dance With My Father was released as a single. I then discovered that album, and then I moved on to his massive classic discography. He is in the same league as MJ and Whitney to me. There are sooooo many classic songs, I cannot name my faves.

                              I am currently stuck on I Know. That song is simply beautiful. I wish I knew of him while he was living but it is what it is

                                  It’s been deleted off youtube but it was a duet with Jennifer Hudson on Dance With My Father (but her parts changed it to mother).
