Google paid tribute to Luther Vandross yesterday, which would have been his 70th birthday. He was an R&B singer who was known for his “velvet voice” that made him the best of all time. Vandross was an 8 time Grammy Award Winner with a wide tenor vocal range.
His family stated, “It is a true reflection of Luther Vandross’ musical legacy around the world to be honored by Google with an animated video Doodle that fittingly captures the joy Luther has brought the world. Luther made each of his songs about one simple, universal subject — love; an emotion and feeling common to the human experience no matter who you are, where you’re from or what you look like.”
