Louie Vega sends the biggest bumping Happy Birthday to Luther with an incredible remix of “My Body,” a never released song recorded in 1979 by Luther! FANDROSS guests will be dancing in the aisles.
“Luther and I met in the late 90s to work on a dance track called ‘Are You Using Me.’ We flowed together like melted butter, so we co-wrote and produced another song ‘When You’re A Woman.’ It was like class was in session watching Luther work his magic. This created unforgettable moments in my career.
It was truly an honor to work with the Great Luther Vandross.” – Louie Vega
