PUBLISHED: 15:00 18 May 2019
A celebration of ‘The Velvet Voice’ of Luther Vandross is coming to The Playhouse in Weston-super-Mare next month.
International Luther Vandross tribute star Harry Cambridge and his 10-piece band will treat audiences to hits from his amazing career which culminated in more than 40 million album sales worldwide.
Vandross is responsible for some of the greatest dance anthems and love songs ever written.
Songs on the night will include Never Too Much, Here and Now, Give Me The Reason, I Really Didn't Mean It, Stop To Love, So Amazing, The Best Things In Life Are Free, Always and Forever, Endless Love and Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now.
The American singer songwriter was a musical master who has influenced countless vocalists with his distinctive brand of satin-smooth vocals.
From 1981-2005, Vandross dominated the American R&B charts - releasing eight number one R&B albums, seven number one R&B singles and another five top-20 R&B singles.
His success was not confined to the USA, and in March 1989 he became the first male artist to sell out 10 consecutive live shows at London's Wembley Arena.
From 1981 to 1996, the singer released 11 consecutive platinum or double platinum albums.
Overall, Vandross received 31 Grammy Award nominations - winning eight times.
The Luther Vandross Celebration is showing at The Playhouse, in High Street, on June 2 at 7.30pm.
