Rest in Peace Luther Vandross

R&B crooner Luther Vandross passed away today (July 1), due to complications brought on by a stroke the singer suffered in 2003.

The singer suffered a serious stroke in April of 2003, shortly before his fifteenth album, Dance With My Father hit stores.

Vandross, born April 20, 1951, sold over 25 million records and influenced a whole generation of singers.

During the period following his stroke, Vandross, 54, lapsed into a coma for roughly six weeks. He started to show signs of recovery, with his condition improving slightly.


This man had a voice like no other. Names in the phone book sounded like sonnets of love when he sang them. He could take any song and make it his own from The Carpenters to Stevie Wonder.

First I have heard of it as well. It is a shame he had the voice of an Angel.
