Be there as American Idol winner Ruben Studdard pays tribute to one of his idols, showcasing his extraordinary vocals on selections from Luther Vandross’ legendary career during a performance that re-creates the wardrobes, lighting and production elements that made Luther’s concerts so memorable. Presented without orchestra Sunday, March 8, 2020, 7:30 p.m. at Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
Imagine… The vocals and music performed like Luther performed them in concert… With hits such as: Always And Forever, Never Too Much, Superstar, A House Is Not A Home, Power Of Love, Here And Now, So Amazing, Stop To Love, I’d Rather, Dance With My Father… and many more. It’s a magical night out – a special concert event for Ruben fans and millions of Luther Vandross fans who long for his music – who now have a show that comes very close to the feeling of his memorable concerts – it’s a vocal tribute to his remarkable talent.
There will never be another Luther Vandross, and no other voice comes closer to him than Ruben Studdard – the remarkable singer who was hailed as the “next Luther” during his American Idol run, and was nominated for a Grammy for singing “Superstar”
This is as close as you’ll get to a Luther show! Produced by Stig Edgren – the creative force who staged events for numerous popes and presidents, created “Elvis Presley – In Concert”, The Colors Of Christmas, designed shows for Earth, Wind & Fire, Gloria Estefan, and created Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable” live video.
