NEW YORK - Grammy award winner Luther Vandross' whose deep, lush voice on such hits as "Here and Now" and "Any Love" sold more than 25 million albums while providing the romantic backdrop for millions of couples worldwide, died Friday. He was 54.
Vandross died at John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Edison, N.J., said hospital spokesman Rob Cavanaugh. He did not release the cause of death.
Since suffering a stroke in his Manhattan home on April 16, 2003, the R&B crooner stopped making public appearances - but amazingly managed to continue his recording career. In 2004, he captured four Grammys' as a sentimental favorite, including best song for the bittersweet "Dance With My Father."
This royally sucks. Sometimes I forget that Barry White died a few years ago on July 4th.
[Edit] Sorry guys, got some more bad news. Renaldo Benson of the legendary group The Four Tops also passed away Friday.
Use don't abuse (ie. adding me to your site's mailing list). And for the love of God please stop sending mp3 files of your music. I am not Clive Davis and to be frank I probably don't want to hear the shit anyway. You should also know that I take my slow, precious time responding to email. And sometimes I don't respond at all.
