    Luther Vandross Honored With Google Doodle On 70th Birthday

    Google honored Luther Vandross yesterday with a doodle on their homepage for what would have been the singer's 70th birthday. Atlanta-based guest artist and animator Sam Bass collaborated with Google on the project that was set to Vandross's first no. 1 hit "Never Too Much." The Vandross family released a statement about the doodle:

    "It is a true reflection of Luther Vandross's musical legacy around the world to be honored by Google with an animated video Doodle that fittingly captures the joy Luther has brought the world. Luther made each of his songs about one simple, universal subject-love; an emotion and feeling common to the human experience no matter who you are, where you're from or what you look like. No one else has expressed this emotion, in song, at the level Luther did for over 35 years. To have Google broadcast that around the world is a wonderful showcase of his immeasurable talent."

    Watch the doodle below.

    With Luther Vandross, the first and last word was almost always “Love”

    With Luther Vandross, the first and last word was almost always “Love” #LutherVandross, #lovesongs

    (April 21, 2020).  Yesterday, fans around the world commemorated what would have been Luther Vandross’ 70th birthday had the late soul icon lived.  He died on July 1, 2005 at the young age of 54. Luther Vandross (1951-2005) As many of us already knew, few could sing about love the way Luther could.  He could turn simple love songs into sonic bouquets.  He could reinvent the plainest of pop gems…

    Throwback: Happy 70th Birthday Luther Vandross!

    Throwback: Happy 70th Birthday Luther Vandross! @luthervandross

    Yesterday was a long and emotional day. I was supposed to meet a friend with the intention of taking shots around town but when we both heard that there was a verdict in the Derek Chauvin murder trial, that changed things up dramatically. I wound up sitting at Clem’s longer than I intended: most of that time was spent crying into pints of Guinness and not knowing what to think or how to really…

    I can't be the only person who feels music like this.

    When Teddy and Stephanie teamed up for Feel the Fire with the background singers commanding, "FEEL IT! I want to feel youuu." and I stretch my arms into the air and settle them into my chest as the saxophone pushes my diastolic over my systolic.

    Or when Rick and Teena sang us the same verse but one felt like a confession and the other a yearn on Fire and Desire.

    Or the way the tears well in my eyes when I sing Patti's You Are My Friend to myself in the mirror.

    Or the way the orchestra slays me in the transition between Luther's Superstar/Until You Come Back to Me. How I ascend Mount Kilimanjaro and touch the gates of Wakanda until Luther joins me with, "Don't you remember you told me you love me bayybayyy?"

    Or how Al Green did his typical freestyle and laid us to rest on Simply Beautiful and had us bouncing to being Tired of Being Alone.

    Or when Cissy Houston's soprano set our heartache afloat to Gilligan's Island with flowers and offerings for our ancestors in Aretha Franklin's Ain't No Way.

    This new(er) age lofi, ethereal sounding, neo-soul/r&b is great but nothing quite gets me like:

    Patti screaming "And it's meee, baybaayy.." on Somebody Loves You Baby

    Or when the piano comes in panned mid-left and the guitar hard-right with Luther's sultry voice emerging dead center singing, "Let me hold you tight..." in If Only for One Night. And when the background singers come in with the drums? And everybody seems to fall back for the chime that pans across my soul to see if I'm still alive?

    Or when Angela's Angel comes in on the two before she hums us into an, "ANGEEELLL!"

    Or the urgency of Peabo singing "I'm so into youuuuu..." and it seems to cut mid-verse because he really needs them to know this in case they walk out mid-song.

    I could do this all day...
