I learned much about Lutha through this!
Jeffery Mingo | Homewood, IL USA | 02/18/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was made years before his stroke, so his health issues aren't really touched upon here. Like every African American, I love his music. Unfortunately, I never knew much about the man. Here you get to hear about his rise to fame, his family, his musical influences, and even his home decorations. Stars like David Bowie, Whitney Houston, and others praise him as well. Unfortunately, Lutha screams, "None of your bee's wax." when it comes to his sexual identity. As much as folk love you, Lutha, you shouldn't be afraid to come out. I'll be here for you, honey! We need gay, black role models like you out there to be representing for us! Everyone should peep this documentary. Also see the chapter on him in "The Greatest Taboo: Homosexuality in Black Communities.""

"Excellent DVD, Luther talks about him and the things that went on in his life. This dvd is the only one that I know of that has Luther actually doing an interview. Many people are on the dvd but most of it is Luther. A must have for Luther fans."
So Amazing!

"My onlly regret is that this documentary wasn't longer. It gave a very concise and complete history of the life and music of Luther Vandross. It's a must have for a artist collection on dvd."
Now THIS...... is a Luther Vandross tribute!

"this DVD surrounds itself with enlightening viewers of the fulfilling life of Luther Vandross. his accomplishments, his rises and falls...which were far and few in between, as this singer/songwriter maintained a steady climb, safely and most assuredly to the top.

I would highly recommend this DVD to any and all desiring to see Luther and learn of a great one who has graced our presence and left his mark on all of our hearts.
thank you BET, for this legacy."
