I am SO SAD about Luther's passing. I didn't know him personally, but, as a grown woman,I am literally sitting here crying as I type. That man could sing. I loved everything he did; I play his music constantly. They don't make, or contract, singers like Luther anymore. There is, and will probably never be anybody like Luther Vandross. May he rest in peace and I'm praying for his mother Mary Ida. My heart is hurting, even worse than when Marvin Gaye passed. The sudden shock of this news...just stunning. Rest in peace Luther. You were and still are loved. Luther is dead. I can't believe it.
