    My cousin just called to tell me the man on the radio said he just heard that Luther Vandross just died.

    Luther suffered a stroke a year or so ago.

    I couldn't find the story on yahoo, but I just heard it on the news. Luther will always be one of my favorite singers, he produced classics that may never be matched. Rest it peace!

    I'm glad you brought this to our attention river, and thank you for providing a link kente. Gee, the man's voice was like silk. He will certainly be missed. May he rest in peace...

    This reminds me of a few years ago -2003, I believe - when another "STOUT" Man of Soul left us, the Maestro, Barry White near this holiday weekend... There's a certain poetry to it all...

    ...and your guitar, you sound so sweet and clear,
    but you're not really here, it's just the radio..


    Peace!
    Isaiah
