darlene love discussing singing backup for luther vandross:

“Power of Love (Love Power),” Luther Vandross (1991)   
“Luther was the last person I ever sang background for. He was the only person that was serious about background singers. Luther was the greatest, because he started out in the business as a background singer, so his sessions were always so much fun. He always had the greatest background singers. When it was time to work, we worked. He was never one of those people that was like, ‘Listen, I’m Luther Vandross, let’s get things straight.’

i just love the idea of luther vandross saying, “listen, i’m luther vandross, let’s get things straight.” also surprising info about him from wikipedia:

He won a total of four Grammy Awards in 2004 including the Grammy Award for Song of the Year for a song recorded not long before his death, “Dance with My Father”. The song was co-written with Vandross’ friend and protégé, Richard Marx.

!!!!! marx and vandross?! protégé and mentor?!
