Luther Ronzoni Vandross Jr. was born in New York City,U.S. on April 20th, 1951, he died of a heart attack on July 1st, 2005. Vandross was interested in music from the age of three, having been given a phonograph, he taught himself to play the piano by ear. While at high school he founded the first Patti LaBelle Fan Club, of which he was president, in later years he would know her personally.
In the 1970’s Vandross made his living as a backing vocalist, and occasional songwriter, he also wrote, and sang commercial jingles for companies, including, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Burger King. The list of artists Vandross sang backing for is far too substantial to write about here, but significant ones include Roberta Flack, and Donny Hathaway (see also best songs 541,) and David Bowie on his Young Americans Album (see also best songs 209.)
His career breakthrough occurred when singing lead vocal on ‘The Glow of Love,’ and ‘Searching,’ for the studio band ‘Change.’ This led to Epic Records offering him a recording contract, and the release of his debut solo Album ‘Never Too Much,’ on which he wrote six of the seven tracks, arranging and producing it as well.
‘A million days in your arms, is never too much.’
