Remembering Luther Vandross

On my way home from work yesterday, I decided to get my car washed. A group of us are going to see Anita Baker tonight. I'm a designated driver. The carwash facility has a climate controlled waiting room where customers can sit and watch television while their cars are being washed. My DD and I immediately proceeded to the waitingroom. As we entered the room, we heard and saw Luther Vandross singing his chart buster: Superstar - sing, sing "Say it's alright, it's alright, Say, ooh, baby, It's alright, it's alright, alright now..,." I smiled, then chuckled to myself as I had fond memories of Luther coming to Chi-Town years ago at this time of year. Watching the video reminded me of just how much I miss going to Luther concerts, anticipating new music, and viewing television appearances (Oprah, the grammies, Christmas specials).


  1. Luther was definitely one-of-a-kind. Often, when I hear his music now, I stop and remember something associated with the song – or I just stop and listen and appreciate his talent. I miss him, too.

  2. Luther was many great songs. "The Night I Fell in Love" brings back so many memories from the eighties for me.

    And I still get teary-eyed whenever I hear "Dance with my father" :)
