    Today is a sad day in the world of contemporary music with the passing of one of the great voices of our time, Luther Vandross. His wonderful love songs and sultry, passionate delivery were particular favorites of my sister and I. Vandross sold more than 25 million albums lit the fires in many a budding relationship.
    God bless you always, Luther.

    Back when I was a child, before life removed all the innocence
    My father would lift me high and dance with my mother and me and then
    Spin me around 'til I fell asleep
    Then up the stairs he would carry me
    And I knew for sure I was loved
    If I could get another chance, another walk, another dance with him
    I'd play a song that would never, ever end
    How I'd love, love, love
    To dance with my father again
    When I and my mother would disagree
    To get my way, I would run from her to him
    He'd make me laugh just to comfort me
    Then finally make me do just what my mama said
    Later that night when I was asleep
    He left a dollar under my sheet
    Never dreamed that he would be gone from me
    If I could steal one final glance, one final step, one final dance with him
    I'd play a song that would never, ever end
    'Cause I'd love, love, love
    To dance with my father again
    Sometimes I'd listen outside her door
    And I'd hear how my mother cried for him
    I pray for her even more than me
    I pray for her even more than me
    I know I'm praying for much too much
    But could you send back the only man she loved
    I know you don't do it usually
    But dear Lord she's dying
    To dance with my father again
    Every night I fall asleep and this is all I ever dream


    RIP, Mr Vandross. Your music moved my soul.

    The man could sing...and put you in the mood for anything.

    Rest in peace Luther.
