#FANDROSSFRIDAY: Luther’s Beautiful Performance of “A House Is Not A Home”

As we observe a powerful month of Black History, enjoy Luther’s performance of “A House is Not a Home” from the 1988 NAACP Image Awards.

The NAACP Image Awards celebrates outstanding achievements of people of color in the arts – television, music, literature, and film – and also honors individuals and groups who promote social justice through creative endeavors.

For almost seven minutes, Vandross performed “A House Is Not a Home.” And while I have no proof, no evidence, no advanced metrics to support the feeling that this is the greatest live performance of a song ever, I’m fairly confident about it. – Rembert Browne, Writer, on Luther’s Performance at the NAACP Image Awards
