Last, and certainly not least, there is the magnificent Luther Vandross, who had been scrutinized for his weight losses and gains throughout his illustrious career. Prior to his passing away in 2005, he had released two more albums, 2001’s “Luther Vandross” and 2003’s “Dance With My Father” at a smaller frame than usual. Since his career began, his weight had become comical fodder for many comedians who knew his size would/did consistently fluctuate. He maintained himself as best he could and will always be remembered for his music. R.I.P. to a great artist and man, Luther Vandross.
