Nat Adderley, Jr. – Musical Director and Producer “The Closer I Get to You” by Luther and Beyonce on how he never got to meet Queen B

People always think I met Beyonce and I never did because I gave them the track and the day they were going to record… they had a couple of evening sessions booked from 5-9pm… and at about 7 o’clock on the first night I called and said I was going to come in and Luther said “we’re done.” He said she was so great. “I have 5  fantastic tracks.”

#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
