Luther: The Life and Longing of Luther Vandross by Craig SeymourI really enjoyed this read, and I learned so much about Luther I didnt know. I just wish he had been able to enjoy his success more. If the book is accurate, his biggest dream was to have a number one pop chart hit. His dream was finally realized, but by then he had had a stroke and was not even able to attend the Grammys to receive his award. There were a lot of interesting stories and revelations in the book. At one point in college he told people Dionne Warwick was his sister. He was that infatuated with her singing style. He idolized Aretha Franklin. They also had a major fight. He also had bitter disagreements with Anita Baker, but toward the end of his life he had rekindled those relationships. David Bowie gave him his first major break. He was famous for doing countless commercial jingles and made a ton of money doing so. He used food like a drug and his up and down weight loss fueled rumors that he had contracted AIDS many times. He lost all his siblings to Diabetes, his father as well and his mother after his death. I thank God for giving us Luther and the music he has left behind. I wish he could have found the love he so longed for. I believe in death he found the ultimate love in the hands of the Creator.
