Celebrating 20 years of Luther’s ” Dance With My Father”

This year marks two decades since the world was captivated by the soulful and emotional ballad “Dance with My Father,” by R&B pioneer and legend Luther Vandross.

Originally released on May 30, 2003, “Dance with My Father” quickly became a timeless classic and a defining moment in Luther Vandross’ illustrious career. Co-written by Vandross and GRAMMY-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Richard Marx, the song beautifully tells the story of a son’s cherished memories with his father and the longing to relive those moments.
