Luther Vandross - So Amazing

Image
Luther Vandross一直是我很喜歡的R&B男歌手之一,初識Luther Vandross是在專科打工時期。

Luther的情歌,甜而不膩...
Luther的快歌,常讓人能感受到戀愛的甜蜜滋味...

以唱廣告歌起家的Luther Vandross,是80年代著名的歌手、詞曲創作人及製作人,1981年與Epic簽約並發行的第一張個人專輯「Never Too Late」,同名單曲一推出即獲得R&B單曲榜第一名,
而此張專輯也獲得白金唱片的殊榮,開始了Luther Vandross燦爛的歌唱生涯。

這位把R&B唱得雋永、迷人的傳奇藝人在2005/7/1,因2003年的中風所引起的併發症而辭世,享年54歲。

Luther Vandross歷年的14張專輯總計在全球創造了超過3000萬張的銷售紀錄,在排行榜上,他締造了7張流行專輯榜TOP 10專輯、7張節奏藍調榜冠軍專輯、12首流行單曲榜TOP 40單曲、7首節奏藍調單曲榜冠軍曲與17首節奏藍調單曲榜TOP 10。生前的最後一張專輯《Dance With My Father》同時在流行專輯榜與節奏藍調專輯榜蟬連冠軍,更一舉在葛萊美獎上,獲得了4座葛萊美獎,包括年度歌曲["Dance With My Father"]、最佳節奏藍調專輯、最佳節奏藍調男歌手、最佳節奏藍調合唱["The Closer I Get To You"],他生涯中的另外4座葛萊美獎則是分別在90、91、96年所拿下的最佳節奏藍調男歌手獎,以及在91年以"Power Of Love/Love Power"所獲得的最佳節奏藍調歌曲獎。

在我收藏的Luther Vandross專輯中,2003年發行的《Dance With My Father》專輯,一直是我的最愛。在我先前所寫的文章中,我也有介紹過。

Luther Vandross在美國樂壇的的人緣一直是算不錯的,眾多歌手都和他合作過(Whitney Houston、Mariah Carey、Beyonce Knowle、Queen Latifah、Busta Rhymes....)等等。

在Soul Train Awards頒獎典禮中,Whitney擔任引言人,極度恭維Luther的樂壇成就,也現場演唱了Luther的名曲So Am…

Life & Style - Delia PATRU

După divorţul de violentul Bobby Brown şi problemele cu drogurile, cunoscuta solistă Whitney Houston încearcă acum să revină pe scena muzicală şi le cere fanilor să îi fie alături în această experienţă.

Odată cu lansarea on line a melodiei „Like I never left“ - „Ca şi cum nu aş fi fost plecată niciodată“, în care îl are drept partener de microfon pe starul R&B Akon, Whitney Houston speră să revină în prim-planul industriei muzicale. Titlul cântecului a dat naştere la nenumărate ipoteze în rândul fanilor cunoscutei soliste. Mulţi cred că noul single este un apel disperat adresat fanilor, a căror încredere a înşelat-o. Alţii cred că melodia este dedicată fostului său soţ, care, pe lângă faptul că a aruncat-o în lumea drogurilor, a fost şi extrem de violent. Apropiaţii lui Houston au lăsat totuşi să se înţeleagă că versurile melodiei fac trimitere la viaţa particul…

Can Whitney Houston still sing?

The diva's voice is feared to have been weakened by crack cocaine
Thursday, 14 August 2008

Whitney Houston’s planning a dramatic comeback after 6 years out of the spotlight and the original diva hopes that her drug and relationship demons haven’t ruined her career for ever.

'She’s convinced that she’s still at the top of her game,' a source tells Now.

Snapped on 27 July at West Hollywood club Villa, Whitney, 45, looked happy with toyboy Ray J, 27, and onlookers said she didn’t touch any alcohol.

Her new track Like I Never Left has been leaked on to the web – and some forums suggest that her power vocals have been weakened by years of crack abuse.

One said: ‘It’s not bad, but it’s not good.’ The track was leaked ahead of plans for a new album this autumn and one of the album’s producers is Mark Ronson.

‘She’s got all the top producers involved,’ the source continues. ‘It just depends if her voice can cut it.’

Whitney's putting her notoriously unhealthy 1…
