    Hey UbZo

    :wave:

    i am we all praying

    i was just talking about
    how his publicist told a
    lie to the media saying
    that he was well on his
    way to recovery

    but his mother made a
    different announcement
    later on

    people the music business
    have no compassion for that
    man beyond his music

    dang, can't they see he's a
    human being like anyone else?


    :confused:


    peace

    pd

    FYI

    Mrs. Mary Vandross speaks about her son Luther Vandross for the first time since his stroke on April 16.

    "Since I live in Philadelphia I go to the hospital every two or three days
    to have a prayer with my son. I hold his hand and pray with him. Right
    after the stroke, he was in grave danger; it was very touch and go. But I
    feel that it is just a matter of time before he improves and to me, his
    appearance gets better daily. It's a very slow process. But I believe there
    is nothing too hard for God.

    I'm overwhelmed by the outpouring of phone calls from people who love
    Luther. Jesse Jackson calls almost every day to pray with me. There is just
    a small group of us that are allowed to visit Luther who is still in
    Intensive Care. His nieces Chanece and Seveda who live in New York come
    every day so when I'm not there, it's comforting to know they are.
    We play music for Luther all day long and we talk to him too. We play all
    his favorites - Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, and we play his music too.
    His friend Fonzi puts the new song Dance With My Father on his pillow - we
    play that one a lot since Luther told me that he thought that was the best
    song he ever wrote. In fact, right after he wrote Dance With My Father he
    called me and he said, 'Mama, I wrote a song for you and daddy, I'm going to
    bring it and see what you think.'

    When I heard it, I felt like I was going to, well, scream. I played it over
    and over and I cried and cried. I was amazed how well Luther remembered his
    father, how we used to dance and sing in the house. I was so surprised that
    at 7 1⁄2 years of age, he could remember what a happy household we had. It was
    always filled with a lot of music. Luther's father - who was also named
    Luther - had a beautiful voice and he would sing and sing. That is where
    Luther got his gift.

    Knowing how he loves this new album, I believe Luther would want it to come
    out now and I'm so grateful that he can get this chance. He is going to
    recover and when he does, I want him to be greeted with a big success story.
    He has to recover, he's all I have left, he's my last surviving child."

    you can also hear cuts from his latest album, there is also some information on Oprah's site who had Luther's mom on her show on the 30th.
