Luther Vandross 1951-2005


What a loss to lose such a talent at such a relatively young age. I played some Luther this morning in memory of both his talent as well as for some of the landmarks that his music has made in my life. Who can forget songs like, "Here and Now", So Amazing", "Give Me the Reason", "Because It's Really Love", and so many more. Thank you for the music, Luther, you will be missed.

The one thing that was so unique and just priceless about Luther Vandross was that there is no one who sounded/sounds like him at all.
One of a kind.

I definitely agree. I was just thinking afer I heard the news about how almost underrated his talent had seemed in today's climate. He's one of the few whose music will be timeless though.

He will be greatly missed. Listened to Peabo talk about working with Luther in 1975 and he said Luther was the only person he knew that truly interpreted a song with his voice.
