Luther Vandross - The Ballads

Now, his memory lives on in a fitting collection of ballads that pay tribute to the soul legend. His mellow voice takes you back to a time when R&B had soul and truly meant something. Unlike today where almost any R&B singer who is enduring emotional turmoil thinks its best to let it out in one of those annoying post–Babyface falsetto wails. His music had essence and feel to it. It got to you…real deep!

Take “So amazing” and “Never too much” which instantly takes you back to 80s, a time when the A-team was big, break dancing made its mark and Luther filled the world with love. His “My endless love“ duet with Mariah Carey is a romantic reminder of why Luther’s ballads have a reputation not just for celebrating weddings, but also for salvaging relationships.

And any guys looking to say “sorry” should look no further than “Buy me a rose” to say it. His music was and will forever be hot. He sang from the heart and gave each song meaning. Nowhere more so than on the award winning “Dance with my father”  which captured him baring his soul about the loss of his father. Share the magic of his songs and have your heart stolen.


It’s going to be pretty hard to fill the shoes of Luther Vandross. He was in a league of his own when it came to soul singers. Swooning the way he did with his love ballads was a turning point in the romantic lives of many courting couples.
