Musical Monday Special Edition ~ Remembering Luther Vandross

Luther Vandross
April 20, 1951 ~ July 1, 2005

Luther Vandross is another extremely talented singer who left us way too soon! He suffered from diabetes and hypertension. In 2003 a stroke left him in a coma for nearly 2 months.  He died at the age of 54 due to a heart attack.

He sold over 35 million records which makes me believe I wasn’t the only one who absolutely loved his voice.  The song, Dance With My Father, won him a Grammy Award (of which he already had many awards) for song of the year.

You can learn more about this extraordinary singer by reading Luther: The Life and Longing of Luther Vandross by Craig Seymore.
