i always listen to this song for makes me cry everytime i heard this song This is the most fantastic song, so true to most people and their feelings for their fathers, either passed or present.I love this song so much Luther captured the reality of a father/child relationship many great memories of dad even though he was the best dad in the world...he taught us all well...was a blessed man and a legend and role model to all his kids. He was the dad God intended him to be and we are who we are today because of it.

Luther Ronzoni Vandross was born on April 20, 1951 at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, New York City, United States.He was the fourth child and second son to Mary Ida Vandross and Luther Vandross, Sr.

Born on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York City in the NYCHA Alfred E. Smith Houses public housing development, Vandross began playing the piano at the age of three. He grew up in a musical family that moved to the Bronx when he was thirteen. His sister, Patricia, sang with the vocal group The Crests, who had a number two hit in 1958 with "16 Candles", though she left the group before the recording. Diabetes runs in his family, according to his mother Mary Vandross. His father Luther Sr. died of complications of diabetes when he was five years old. In 2003, Vandross released the album Dance With My Father in memory of his father. The title track, which was dedicated to the memory of Luther Vandross,Luther Vandross suffered a massive stroke April 2003 and had lain with the effects of it undiscovered for 8 hours. He had lost his ability to walk, to speak etc. Complicating matters, he was diabetic and hypertensive. When he made an appearance on the Oprah Show months before his death, he had severely slurred speech ( worse than Dick Clark's)
Debilitating strokes also have the effect of making the person severely depressed.
Stroke victim's bodies react differently BUT the one thing I had seen with a few of the people that I knew who suffered from catastrophic strokes was that prior to their deaths, they lost a dramatic amount of weight due to not wanting to eat and the body slowly cannibalizing itself to keep functioning until organs shut down and death occurs Luther Vandross was in a high school group, Shades of Jade, that once played at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. He was also a member of a theater workshop, "Listen My Brother" who released the singles "Only Love Can Make a Better World" and "Listen My Brother", and appeared on the second and fifth episodes of Sesame Street in November 1969.
