Divabetic remembers the 8 year anniversary of losing a legend, the late Luther Vandross (April 20, 1951 - July 1, 2005) with this special podcast, Tribute to Luther Vandross, celebrating his career during the 1980s.  Luther Vandross was a musical master whose style has influenced an entire generation of today's vocalists. His distinctive brand of satin smooth vocal magic moved international audiences and continues to touch people to this day.

Throughout the ’80’s, Luther Vandross released 6 consecutive platinum/double platinum albums on Sony’s Epic Records label starting with his debut album as a solo performer, Never Too Much, in 1981. The album earned Vandross two Grammy Award nominations in 1982 - “Best New Artist” and “Best R & B Vocal Performance, Male.” In addition, the album includes his rendition of Dionne Warwick’s “A House Is Not A Home” which became one Luther’s signature songs, while it received attention for its transformation into an "epic" since its duration was extended to seven minutes.

The happy healthcare host, Mr. Divabetic, who worked with Vandross for more than 14 years, hosts this hour long tribute podcast featuring Alfa Anderson, Ivan Hampton, Jr., Jeff James from SONY MUSIC, Seveda Williams, Dave Jones, Darren Margo and Luther fans from around the world.
