    Luther Vandross Honor to you



    As a kid I remember mommy playing you on the record player and I would love sitting on the hard wood floor singing along.

    As I got older I was able to understand that your lyrics and melodies came from the heart and

    soul. Songs of love , relationships , friendships

    and life. I admire Luther Vandross for not following the majority and for staying true to R&B that is pure. His music will live on for generations to come and my kids and grandkids will know his name.

    A voice so pure it is like the whisper of an angel , An R&B legend - you will be remembered by millions for the positive outlook that you had on life and for sharing your life with the whole world through song.moreless
