R&B Legend Luther Vandross Passes Away Print E-mail
Friday, 01 July 2005
Luther Vandross passed away at age 54 this Friday. The cause of death was not disclosed but Rob Cavanaugh, a spokesman for the JFK Medical Center in New Jersey where Vandross passed away, talked about the stroke the singer suffered in 2003 as something he "never fully recovered from". Vandross suffered from diabetes and hypertension for years. Vandross financed his own debut after being rejected by record companies in 1981 and topped R&B charts soon thereafter. He had a number of hits with "Stop to Love", "Here and Now" and "Endless Love" in the eighties and nineties. He even had a surge of success after his stroke. His album, "Dance With My Father" released that same year went on to sell over one million copies and win three Grammy's in 2004. The soulful crooner also won a Grammy this year for "The Closer I Get to You", a duet with Beyonce Knowles.
