Luther Vandross to jedna z gwiazd amerykańskiej muzyki soulowej. Mimo wspaniałego, romantycznego głosu, nie udało mu się jednak zrobić wielkiej, międzynarodowej kariery, choć ma na koncie aż 13 Platynowych i podwójnie Platynowych płyt oraz osiem nagród Grammy.

Również w USA pod koniec lat 90. nie szło mu najlepiej, w efekcie czego stracił kontrakt nagraniowy. Związał się ostatecznie z małą wytwórnią J Records. W kwietniu 2003 roku 54-letni obecnie Vandross przeszedł poważny udar mózgu, w wyniku którego zmarł w lipcu 2005 roku. Choroba przyczyniał się jednak do ponownego wzrostu popularności artysty i jego album "Dance With My Father" (2003) uplasował się na pierwszym miejscu zestawienia Billboardu.
