Happy 60th Birthday 'Lufer'
Today would have been the 60th birthday of Luther Ronzoni Vandross, who was born on this date in New York City in 1951. There are more than a few of you younglings who probably owe your existence on Planet Earth to the fact that your parents were listening to his music the night you were conceived.
And what music it was. While we all remember the romantic ballads and remakes of classic songs that he gave that Luther touch, he could put together some songs that would make you move as well.
