We’re honored to celebrate Luther Vandross and his musical legacy as well as raise awareness for diabetes health-related complications (such as stroke) on our annual Luther Vandross Tribute podcast.
Featured guests include ‘Here & Now’ Songwriter Terry Steele, Author of ‘Eat ‘What You Love, Love What You Eat’Dr. Michelle May , Divabetic Image & Style Advisor Catherine Schuller AICI, CPI, Luther Historian Leon Petrossian, and superfans.
Throughout the podcast we will be featuring selected songs from the album entitled ‘Busy Body’ courtesy of SONY Music. On ‘Busy Body’, Luther Vandross’ third album features ‘Superstar’, ‘For the Sweetness Of Your Love’, and the duet with Dionne Warwick entitled ‘ How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye’. ‘Busy Body’ was one of only four albums that sold over a million by African American artists in the US in 1083 -Prince, Michael Jackson, and Lionel Richie released the others – and it demonstrates more than ever how Vandross deserved his place among those megastars.
In the years since Luther’s passing, one constant has remained to define his life and musical success: the voice. Like any great singer of the past 100 years, Luther Vandross’ voice and distinct singing style led to not only monumental success, but an instant recognition when you hear him singing–through your stereo, car radio, on TV or in a movie. Coupled with that voice was Luther’s unique ability to write and sing about love and the shared emotions we all feel in that search for and enjoyment of love. Through his songs, for the last two generations Luther Vandross became a staple in the most joyous moments of people’s lives.
Join us for the inaugural Fandross Fest presented by the Vandross Family Estate and Divabetic celebrating the musical legacy of Luther Vandross and raising awareness for the prevention of diabetes health-related complications such as stroke.
Fandross Fest is Saturday, May 12, 2018, 6:30 – 9:30 PM at SVA Theater 333 West 23rd Street in New York, NY. BUY TICKETS NOW.
