Paulette McWilliams On Working With Luther Vandross

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, singer Paulette McWilliams talked about her friendship and work with Luther Vandross. An excerpt:

I started on the road with Luther in 1984. I started recording with him in 1980. … And while I was on the road with Luther, we did all kinds of things. We did sessions. It was such a learning experience. … He was just a consummate artist. There was no one like him. No one. He took what he saw and realized that nobody in the R&B world did shows like that. He set a precedent. He brought what he learned to the table and said, “This is going to happen.”
