Vandross rose to prominence for his lush voice, soulful and romantic ballads, as well as his numerous collaborations with stars like Dionne Warwick, Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson. Born and raised in a musical family, Vandross made his big break in the 1970s, as a back-up singer and soon after as a session musician and producer with the likes of David Bowie, Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand. The soul balladeer then saw the release of his debut solo album, Never Too Much (1981), which was the first of his many successes. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s he went on to become a dominant male vocalist on the R&B charts, with manifold hits including duets How Many Times Can We Say Goodbye (1983,with Warwick) and Endless Love (1994, with Mariah Carey). A big man as he was, Luther became also known for his struggle with weight and diabetes. It was on April, 16, 2003, when Luther Vandross suffered a stroke and sank into a coma. Before the unfortunate event, he had already completed the album Dance With My Father, which included collaborations with Queen Latifah, Beyoncé Knowles, Foxy Brown and Busta Rhymes. Two months later Vandross came out of coma and his recent album won four Grammys in 2004. This was the fourth and last Grammy Award Vandross has ever received as he died the following year.
