Remembering Music Superstar Luther Vandross

Bruce Furst

Music and film producer Bruce Furst has served as president of Ashber Corporation for more than 17 years. Bruce Furst was the executive producer of the number-one selling album of 2006, Christmas Classics: Yesterday, Today & Forever, a compilation album featuring top-selling artists, including Luther Vandross.

The music career of Luther Vandross began when he started recording commercial jingles for radio and TV. Soon after, he became a background vocalist for top artists like Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, Donna Summer, and David Bowie. Eventually, Vandross signed with Epic Records and released his first album, Never Too Much, in 1981. The album went platinum.

Though he had been in the music business for years, Luther Vandross did not achieve widespread popularity until the early 1990s. He won Grammy Awards for the songs Here and Now and Power of Love in 1991 and 1992, respectively.

After suffering a stroke in 2003, Luther Vandross passed away on July 1, 2005. Vandross left his mark on R&B music with timeless hit songs like Endless Love, Always and Forever, and A House is Not a Home. His final album, Dance with My Father, sold more than two million copies and won four Grammys in 2003.
