He was a beautiful man, both inside and out. His family has been through so much these last few years, with his health. So Sad

Luther Vandross was certainly an incredible person. With the beautiful, sweet voice he had he recorded "Dance With My Father" 1 year after suffering a stroke which left him in a coma for 2 months, and at one point, had to have a tracheotomy to help him breathe. He was too ill to attend the Grammy ceremony in 2004 which won him 4 Grammys.

Another song of his I loved was "Here and Now".

Rest in peace, Mr. Vandross, and thank you for your music....
