    Awesome Tribute Luther!!!!!

    I see lots of reviews for this one!! I think one thing that needs to be put in perspective is that this is a tribute cd of songs covered by some of the artists that were dear & true to Luther. The songs they sing are their gift to the great talent that was Luther Vandross! I think all the songs are great, but the standouts to me are most definitely USHER's Superstar & DONNA SUMMER's Power of Love!! The latter is really the only uplifting joyful song on here....I'd like to believe that Luther would particularly have loved this version simply because it is a well crafted vocal & produced song and it makes ya wanna dance!! Beautiful... OH Mr Clive D, Where are the remixes of Power of Love for the public to buy!! We love it!!

    excellent

    This is an amazing album..I am a huge fan of singers(not performers like Britney)and this was an excellent compilation. This album really showed the vocal abilities of all these artists.Especially Usher who jus blew me away. For anyone who loved Luther Vandross you will love this album..Personally i was not a fan of Luther Vandross until hearing this album. I highly recommend this album for all music lovers. The only thing missing was Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey

    GREAT TO BUY!!

    I AM REALLY HAPPY WITH THIS CD. SUPERSTARS THAT HAVE MADE A TRIBUTE TO AN OUTSTANDING VOICE AND MUSIC. I ENJOYED MOST OF THE TRACKS, BUT I FOUND OUTSTANDING DONNA SUMMER'S RENDITION OF POWER OF LOVE, ALTHOUGH THE VERSION IS TOO SHORT. I HOPE THEY MAKE REMIXES AVAILABLE TO US WHO ENJOY DANCE MUSIC.

    "So Ridiculous"

    Listening to this CD only makes me miss Luther even more. First of all, what is Elton John doing on here, much less sharing the same track as Luther?! I actually enjoyed Usher's "Superstar" and - surprise - Celine Dion's take on "Dance with My Father". Beyonce & Alicia Keys sound smooth, but sorry, the great Aretha Franklin sounds like a drunk warbling chicken on "House is Not a Home". Making a song "yours" is one thing. Destroying it & making poor Luther turn in his grave is another. Sorry, but this album is hardly a tribute. It just proves that even the "great" singers of our time can not compare to the special silky voice and smooth style of that great master - Luther Vandross. Rest in peace, man, and WISH YOU WERE HERE!!

    Are you kidding me!??

    The only person who could ever sing Luther was, and will always be Luther. If you want to honor Mr. Vandross, start a charity in his name, or think of time spent with this icon. Don't butcher his songs and ruin the legacy which you claim to be honoring. I for one would like my money back.
