Luther Vandross inducted into the Smithsonian

FANDROSS proudly announces Luther Vandross has been inducted into the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, Musical Crossroads section!

It’s incredible to know that Luther’s musical contributions to the world are now memorialized among the other greats that will be enjoyed for generations to come.

His display is stunning, dramatic and gorgeous. It has his eye-catching red, black and crystal sequenced Art Deco stage jacket and was created by fashion designer Tony Chase. It’s a striking reminder of the beauty, elegance and refined showmanship he created for his audiences worldwide.

The case also contains Luther’s own hand-written lyric sheet for his Grammy winning song “Dance With My Father” in addition to the only microphone he used to record his studio albums.

When you’re in Washington, please enjoy the entire museum, but make your first stop Luther’s display on the fourth floor.
